Background: This research mainly consists of determining whether concrete with the addition of fiberglass helps in its physical and mechanical properties and properties on the compressive, bending and adsorption forces of concrete in Iraq. Aim of project: this paper aims to modelling of sample beam concrete when added fibre glass to know flexural strength. material and method: In this study, 4 samples were collected were distributed on (control sample - and 3 samples to which fibers were added in different proportions with dimension1000mmlength -150 width-150height ).The tests applied in this experiment were based on the discipline positioning test at the age of 28 days and The L.V.D.T deviation reader was relied upon until a failure occurred the sample ,The modelling of concrete beams was based on the according blender program. Results : These obtained data were analysed using Microsoft Excel and SPSS. result showed compressive strength test of concrete beams had an increase compared to the control group when added 1.5% with 9.2%. It was noted that there were statistical differences between samples to which glass concrete fibers were added with the control group at p value <0.001 .the tensile strength achieved the highest value increase when glass fibers were added with 1.5% to become 5.3 MPA, The results of the three-dimensional modelling of concrete beams using the blender program appeared Great accuracy and convergence compared to the laboratory results of the research samples Conclusion: Reinforced concrete beams reinforced with glass fibers showed greater tensile and compression resistance compared to traditional reinforced concrete beams in order to achieve them and modelling the results helped in obtaining more accurate results, although there was no significant difference in the extracted result
