Waste Glass Powder, Compressive Strength, Fine Aggregate, Durability


The amount of waste glass has gradually increased over the recent years due to an ever-growing use of glass products. Most of the waste glasses are being dumped into landfill sites. The land filling of waste glasses is undesirable because they are not biodegradable, which makes them environmentally less friendly. There is huge potential for using waste glass in the concrete construction sector. On the other hand, with natural sand deposits the world over drying up, there is an acute need for a product that matches the properties of natural sand in concrete. In the last 15 years, it has become clear that the availability of good quality natural sand is decreasing. Environmental concerns are also being raised against uncontrolled extraction of natural sand. The arguments are mostly in regards to protecting riverbeds against erosion and the importance of having natural sand as a filter for ground when waste glasses are reused in making concrete products, the production cost of concrete will come down. Waste glass powder can exhibit characteristics similar to that of sand. In this report we are going to discuss how the waste glass will have its significant effect on concrete and its properties. Fine aggregate replacement levels by waste glass powder15, 20, and 25 % along with partial replacement of glass powder and coarse aggregate by Recycle Aggregate (40%). The compressive strength of concrete cubes is tested for 7, 14, 28, days were found and results obtained were compared with that of normal concrete.
