Abstract
In this study, the behavior of the recycled plastic, glass and rubber tire as partial replacement of coarse aggregate in concrete have been investigated. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, one of the waste plastic types, broken glass of bottles and rubber tires are used for these purposes. The reason to choose these to transfer the recycles materials into valuable product and to solve the problem of dumping the tons of plastic waste, broken glass and rickshaw tires. In this study compressive strength of cylinder concrete specimens were carried out at 7 and 28 days curing. Six concrete mixes have been studied, those are—reference specimens with no recycled material (CS0), specimens with 15% plastic (CSP15), specimens with 15% (CSR15) and 30% (CSR30) tire, specimens with 15% (CSG15) and 30% (CSG30) glass. Total 24 cylindrical specimen of 8”x4” were tested for compressive strength. The order of compressive strength was CS0 > CSG30 > CSG15 > CSR15 > CSR30 > CSP15. The Study found that compressive strength of concrete mix decreases with the increase of plastic and rubber content. However, compressive strength of concrete increases with the increase of glass content. Plastic material have low bonding with cement in concrete and perform poorly. On contrary, glass works very well with concrete and compressive strength of concrete reduces with the increase of rubber content.
