Abstract

Glass is one of the oldest and the most widely used materials in the world. Glass has a very limited life in the form in which it is used. One option for safe environmental and economic disposal of this waste is to reuse them in building materials. So glass has to be recycled or reused to avoid environmental problems. Also during the past few decades the availability and cost of river sand has become a major concern. The objective of this project work is to study the effects of using waste glass as a partial replacement for fine aggregate and steel slag as a partial replacement of coarse aggregate. Different concrete mixes were prepared by varying the amounts for crushed waste glass. The waste glass was used to replace fine aggregate in the proportions of 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%,50%. Property like compressive strength have been reviewed in this paper. Another attempt has also been made to replace coarse aggregate with steel slag as there is a growing interest in using waste materials as alternative aggregate materials and significant research is made on the use of many different materials as aggregate substitutes such as coal ash, blast furnace slag and steel slag aggregate. This type of use of a waste material can solve problems of lack of aggregate in various construction sites and reduce environmental problems related to aggregate mining and waste disposal. Different concrete mixes were prepared by varying the amounts for steel slag. The steel slag was replaced as a partial replacement of coarse aggregate in the proportion of 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%.and compressive strength of concrete has been reviewed and yet another attempt has been made by replacing both fine aggregate and coarse aggregate by waste glass powder and steel slag respectively, and studying the compressive strength of concrete.
