The tensile strength, flexural strength and toughness of cement-based composites can be effectively improved by adding an appropriate amount of plant fibers. The main way to improve the durability of cement-based composites is to add ash materials and plant fibers to the cement. Only by improving the durability of cement-based composites, the building structure can be more long-term and safer. This paper summarizes the classification and properties of plant fiber, studies the current situation and analysis of plant fiber, analyzes the results, discusses the development of plant fiber, and should pay more attention to engineering application in the future.
