Abstract: This paper reports the recent past and current research and developments for the effective utilization of natural fibres from coconut husk, sisal, sugarcane bagasse, bamboo, jute, wood, akwara, plantain and musamba for making concrete*. Factors affecting the properties of natural fibre reinforced concrete both in fresh and hardened states are critically discussed. An outline is also given of the prospects of this new material for potential applications in construction. © 1981.
