Textile Wastes, Flexural Strength Test, Coarse Aggregate


In the study, the textile wastes consist of polyester and viscose taken from the textile and apparel manufacturers. These wastes were cut into 2 to 6cm lengths and mixed with Portland cement according to the textile-to-cement ratio of 1%,2%,3% and 4% by the cement weight. Water was added corresponding to 0.40 water-to-cement ratio. The composites were cured in water and then tested for compressive, flexural and split tensile strength test at the age of 3, 7 and 28 days respectively. Upto 3% of textile waste give more split tensile strength and flexural strength compare to conventional concrete.
