The results of dynamic compression and tensile-splitting tests of concrete reinforced by randomly distributed short non – metallic fibres are presented. A Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar combined with a high-speed photographic system, was used to conduct dynamic Brazilian tests. Quasi static test show that the reinforcement of concrete by the non-metallic fibres leads to the improvement of mechanical properties at quasi static loading. This phenomenon was not observed at the high strain rate loading .Some explanation of this result is briefly outlined.
