RC Beams, Environmental Wastes


The concrete is made with wastes which are freely available in present environment and named as eco-friendly concrete or Green concrete. This Green Concrete is an environmental friendly and the overall impact on the environment per ton of concrete is limited. Some of the environmental waste materials are fly ash, marble powder, ceramic, crushed stone dust, Blast furnace slag, copper slag, demolition wastes, rice husk ash(RHA) etc. It has been observed that 1.71 tons of CO2 is produced per ton of cement production causes environment pollution. Now we have to reduce the production of cement for better environment. This focus of study goes on cement replacements only. Lot of research work showed and over and above all eco-friendly concrete has greater strength and durability than the normal concrete and having low flexural strength. The research papers showed compressive and tensile strengths results only so, in practical way no one can using these environmental wastes in concrete. In another study using glass fibres in concrete to improve and increase the flexural strength. There are lot of research work and plenty of journals about using 1% optimum of glass fibres in concrete for increasing the flexural strength behaviour and increasing the load carrying capacity of structural members comparative with normal concrete. So this experimental research is about how to improve the flexural strength in eco-friendly concrete with adding of glass fibres and study the strength parameters.
