Glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) is a composite material that is widely used in construction due to its high strength and durability. GFRC is made by adding glass fibers to the concrete mix, which increases the tensile strength of the material. This paper evlautes the shear resistance (SR) of sliced glass fiber (30 mm) GFRC beams. The shear resistance of GFRC beams can be significantly improved by adding glass fibers to the concrete mix. However, further research is needed to fully understand the shear behavior of GFRC and to optimize its design for maximum shear resistance. The result indicates that shear fracture glass fiber is a better alternative for increasing a shear resistance input mechanism.
