The effect of temperature variation on concrete properties with steel and synthetic fibre additions was examined. The range of performance characteristics were determined at room temperature (20°C) and ±40°C of room temperature. Standard test methods were carried out in order to determine the flexural strength, bond strength and toughness of fibre reinforced concrete at varying temperatures. A significant increase in the performance of concrete was observed at a temperature of -20°C as well as a minor decrease in performance at temperatures of 60°C. Synthetic fibres provided the optimal performance when compared to the control and steel fibre samples.
