Abstract This study aims to investigate the axial stress-strain behavior of macro-synthetic fiber reinforced recycled aggregate concrete. Concrete cylinders reinforced with macro-synthetic fibers were tested under axial compression, with the variation of three different replacement ratios of recycled aggregates (i.e., 0, 50 and 100%) and three different dosages of macro polypropylene fibers (i.e., 0, 0.5 and 1% of volume of recycled aggregate concrete). A comparative study of the existing stress-strain models for steel fiber reinforced normal and recycled aggregate concrete with the test results indicates that the stress-strain behavior of steel fiber reinforced normal and recycled aggregate concrete can be well predicted by these existing models. No stress-strain model for macro-synthetic fiber reinforced normal and recycled aggregate concrete has been developed. Based on the test results, a stress-strain model is developed in this work by modifying the parameters of best performing stress-strain model for steel fiber reinforced normal aggregate concrete. The proposed model can effectively predict the stress-strain behavior of both steel and macro-synthetic fiber reinforced normal and recycled aggregate concrete. Test results show that the peak stress, peak strain and ultimate strain of concrete specimens increase with the increase in fiber dosage and the addition of fibers has a better effect on recycled aggregate concrete and as compared to normal aggregate concrete.
