Nowadays, the use of lightweight concrete in structural concrete buildings is preferred because it lowers the density of the concrete and decreases the weight of the building. Therefore, the load bearing structural members can be minimized and contributes into more economical of foundation. Steel fibres are selected as an additive to the concrete in favor of increase the energy absorption capacity and improve the tensile strength of concrete. Previous study had shown that by using 1.2% steel fibre increased the tensile strength of the all-lightweight concrete more than twelve times. The project aims to identify the potential of adding steel fiber to enhance the strength of lightweight concrete. The optimization study will be conducted in term of tensile strength, bearing strength and toughness of lightweight concrete. This research is expected to contribute the impact on the usage of steel fibre to increase strength of lightweight concrete although decreasing the weight of the building.
