The objective of this research work was to determine the effect of fiber cocktail on mechanical properties of concrete. Three types of fibers were used namely monofilament polypropylene fiber, steel fiber and glass fiber. Steel and glass fiber were incorporated in concrete at different dosages while the content of Polypropylene fiber was kept constant. For this purpose, cubes (150×150×150mm) and prisms (101×101×508mm) were casted for compressive strength test on cubes and Two-Point load test on prisms. Eighteen different mixes were prepared such as control mix, single fiber concrete, double hybrid concrete and triple hybrid concrete. It was observed that both compressive and flexural strength increased with addition of single, double and triple fibers. However, the strengths of triple hybrid concrete were observed to be lesser as compared to single and double hybrid concrete.
