This study investigates the effect of using different volume fractions of basalt macro fibers (BMF) on the flexural behavior of concrete beams made with 100% recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) experimentally. A total of 4 reinforced concrete (RC) beam specimens were flexural tested until failure. The parameter investigated included the BMF volume fraction (0%, 0.5%, 1%, and 1.5%). The testing results of the specimens were compared to control beam specimen made with no added fibers. The experimental results showed that adding BMF improves the flexural capacity of the tested beams.
