    Abstract: This paper presents the findings of an investigation on the compressive strength properties of kenaf fiber composite mortar. Water–retted kenaf fibers were used as reinforcement in cement mortar. Fiber contents of 1%, 2% and 3 % (by weight of cement) with varying lengths of 10mm, 20mm and 30mm were used to produce 50mm mortar cubes. The Composite m... Show More
