Abstract

Aggregates, both fine and coarse are the most important components of concrete. The cost of these aggregates is on the increase. The waste glass disposal becoming a major issue for the communities worldwide. These factors are major thrusts of this study the investigation of crushed waste glass as partial replacement of fine aggregate in concrete, with a view to protecting the environment and also reducing the cost of concrete. The properties of concretes containing waste Glass Powder as partial substitution for natural sand were investigated in this study. Glass dust waste was used as a partial replacement for sand at 5%, 10%, 12% and 20% by weight for M-25 concrete mix. The concrete specimens were tested for, workability and compressive strength at 7 days and 28 days of age and the results obtained were compared with those of conventional concrete.
