Abstract    :   In this paper is presented based on the excellent properties of light guiding and elasto-optic effect of optical fiber, a novel smart transparent concrete is researched by arranging the optical fibers into the concrete. The main purpose was to use sunlight as a light source in order to reduce the power consumption of illumination.Optical fibres are one which helps for transmission of light through the concrete The present investigation aims at producing the concrete specimens by reinforcing optical fibers with different percentage and comparing it with the normal concrete. Different tests were carried out on the concrete specimens like compressive strength test, flexural strength, light transmission test etc. The compressive strength results obtained for the specimens with optical fibers was almost same as that of normal concrete specimen.
