Plastic Totum, Plastic Waste, Aggregate


Due to rapid industrialization and urbanization in the country lot of infrastructure developments are taking place. This process has in turn led questions to mankind to solve the problems generated by this growth. The problems defined are acute shortage of constructional materials, increased productivity of waste and other products. In this project M30 grade concrete is taken and waste plastic is used as modifier. Tests were conducted on coarse aggregates, fine aggregates, cement and modifiers (plastic waste) to determine their physical properties. Trail mixes are prepared with 5%, 10% and 15% of plastic aggregates as the replacement for sand in M30 grade of concrete. Based on the mechanical strength of concrete, it is observed that 5% replacement of sand with plastic aggregates is the optimum content. Experimental investigation was carried on the concrete with 5% of plastic aggregates as the replacement for fine aggregates by conducting the following tests such as Rapid Chloride Penetration Test, Youngs Modulus Test, Flexural Strength Test and Impact Strength Tes.
