Experimental studies on basalt fiber have been performed in China and abroad. Specifically, the compressive properties, flexural properties, splitting tensile properties and impact test behavior of chopped basalt fiber-reinforced concrete have been investigated. In addition, the effects of the mixing amount of fibers on the mechanical properties of C30 concrete were scrutinized, and the best mixing amount of fibers was obtained. The results indicate that the static and impact test behaviors of basalt fiber reinforced concrete significantly improved, and strengthening and toughening effects were achieved.
