The fracture response of macro polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete (PPFRC) and hybrid blend of macro and micro polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete (HyFRC) are evaluated at 1, 3, 7 and 28 days. There is an improvement in the early-age fracture response of HyFRC compared to PPFRC. The changing cohesive stress-crack separation relationship produced by ageing of the concrete matrix is determined from the fracture test responses. An improved early-age cohesive stress response is obtained from the hybrid blend containing micro and macro fibers. The hybrid fiber blend also has a higher tensile strength at early age when compared to an identical volume fraction of macro polypropylene fibers. © 2021 Trans Tech Publications Ltd, Switzerland.
