The ability of concrete to give a lower weight and retain good properties for strength is very important concrete structures. Lightweight concrete is known for its brittleness hence the strengthening of the concrete with dispersed chopped fiber is necessary. The addition of dispersed chopped fiber in polystyrene concrete to check the effect of the fiber this concrete the main objective of this paper. The experimental method of research was used in this research paper after a proper review of previous works by other researchers were done. 42 grams of fiber were added in the concrete mix of each composition. The results of this research show a noticeable effect of fiber in the lightweight expanded polystyrene concrete. The concrete without fiber showed the best compressive strength followed by the concrete with dispersed polypropylene fiber.
