This paper presents the relationship between modulus of elasticity and, modulus of rupture relationship with compressive strength of M60 concrete incorporating Polypropylene fiber. Comparing the experimentally obtained results with the mechanical properties calculated using the recommend relationship from the various design codes, one finds substantial variation in the data. A new empirical relationship between elastic modulus, modulus of rupture and compressive strength of Polypropylene fiber based M60 concrete is proposed.
