Summary This research is concerned with the mechanical and physical properties of hemp fibre reinforced concrete (HFRC). An experimental program was developed based on the statistical method of fractional factors design. The variables for the experimental study were: (1) mixing method; (2) fibre content by weight; (3) aggregate size; and (4) fibre length. Their effects on the compressive and flexural performance of HFRC composites were investigated. The specific gravity and water absorption ratio of HFRC were also studied. The results indicate that the compressive and flexural properties can be modelled using a simple empirical linear expression based on statistical analysis and regression, and that hemp fibre content (by weight) is the critical factor affecting the compressive and flexural properties of HFRC.
