Latex modified mortar and concrete provide a good workability, water retention over conventional cement mortar & concrete .In contrast toordinary cement mortar and concrete which are apt to cause bleedingand segregation, the resistance of latex modified mortar & concrete to bleeding and segregation is excellent in spite of their larger flow abilitycharacteristics. Setting time of latex modified mortar & concrete isdelayed in some extent. In concrete the tensile & flexural strengths areimproved over a normal concrete but in compressive strength there isno improvement.The polymer-cement ratio has more pronounced effect on the strengththan the water cement ratio. When the sand-cement ratio increases, theflexural and compressive strength of latex-modified mortars areremarkably reduced, and the effect of the latex - cement ratio on thestrengths gradually becomes smaller.In the present work concrete has been modified using latex as the polymer .In addition steel fibres have been added to check combined properties of concrete.In general there is increase in compressive, tensile & flextural strengthwith increase in fibre and latex.

INTRODUCTION
Engineering achievements have always been closely associated withthe availability of suitable materials for construction. Further progressof engineering will depend on continuous development of all forms of construction developed of all forms of construction.Polymer concrete composites were developed during 1960’s in U.S.A.In INDIA it is widely used for rehabilitation of structures. The popularity gained by the materials is justified by its extra-ordinary highstrength, lower unit weight, total water impermeability and unmatchedchemical resistance.Engineers are trying to improve its quality, strength, etc.against adversecondition. For satisfactory utilization of this alternative material, thevarious phases of examination to check its:
Technical feasibility
Durability of processed concrete
Economic feasibilityWith the ongoing research being done to develop appropriatetechnology and field trials to monitor the performance ad assessment of economic feasibility, the use of this alternative material will becomemore viable.
