Abstract: An investigation conducted on the mechanical properties of cement paste and mortar reinforced with jute fibres is reported in this paper. Different lengths of fibres were used as reinforcement which were randomly oriented and uniformly distributed in the matrix. Specimens with varying fibre contents (volume fraction) were tested in direct tension, flexure, axial compression and impact. The results of this investigation have shown the feasibility of using jute fibres in developing a low-cost construction material particularly for roofing, wall panels and other building boards in countries where jute fibres are readily available. © 1982.
