Abstract - An experimental investigation of the behavior of concrete beams reinforced with conventional beams subjected to flexural loading is presented. An experimental program consisting of tests on steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) beams with conventional reinforcement and reinforced concrete (RC) beams was conducted under flexural loading. SFRC beams include two types of beams containing beams with fully hybrid fibers and beams with fibers only in hinged zones. The cross-sectional dimensions and span of beams were fixed same for all types of beams. The dimensions of the beams were “80mm x 120mm x 2200mm”. Tests on conventionally reinforced concrete beam specimens, containing Steel fibers in different proportions, have been conducted to establish load deflection curves. The various parameters, such as, first crack load, ultimate load and stiffness characteristics, energy absorption, toughness index of beams with and without steel fibers have been carried out and a quantitative comparison was made on significant stages of loading. It was observed that SFRC beams showed enhanced properties compared to that of RC beam. Finally calculate the ultimate strength of the conventionally reinforced beams with steel fibers. The ultimate loads obtained in the experimental investigation were also compared for all types of beams
