Experimental Investigations on Cement Concrete by Using Waste Steel As A Fibre in Concrete IJTSRD
As the technology is getting advanced day by day bringing the enhancement in comfort level of the human beings for example use of plastic containers. The use of plastic and metal containers has became very popular for carrying any liquid or semi liquid content. But if we see as per the rule of nature every action has a reaction likewise after looking at the advantages there are many disadvantages for example the plastic material used for making is not decomposible naturally and has to be taken care of artificially. So the researchers today are finding the way out for processing, recycling or reusing such material for some other purpose. In today scenario the constructions globally are increasing rapidly so there is a need of the construction industry to find out the cost effective materials for increasing the strength of concrete structures. Keeping this in mind the researcher has decided to study the influence of addition of waste materials like lathe waste, soft drink bottle caps, empty waste tin, waste steel powder as a mixing material with the concrete in the percentage of maximum 1 to 1.2 of total weight of concrete. All the scrap material mentioned above was collected and processed in to strips of approximately size of 15 to 25 mm. Today due to Global warming there is a need of using maximum quantity of such recyled material by which we can conserve the natural resources and reduce the amount of materials going to our landfills. Large quantities of metal waste are generated from empty metal cans and bottle caps of juices and soft drinks. This is an environmental issue as metal waste is difficult to biodegrade and involves processes either to recycle or reuse. Today the construction industry is in need of finding effective materials for increasing the strength of concrete structures with low cost, and with less environmental damage. In this study the researcher has tried his level best for the positive results by using the waste or scraped metal material as a partial substitute for coarse aggregate with the help of orange leaves powder as a plasticizer. The parameters like slump, demoulded density, split tensile strength, compressive strength, flexural strength properties at different percentages replacement of coarse aggregate with waste bottle caps were investigated in the laboratory. In this investigation, after conducting certain laboratory tests the researcher has done the comparison between plain cement concrete and the metal fiber reinforced cement concrete in various proportions by weight. The metal fibers used in this study were irregular in shape and varying aspect ratio. Analytical comparison of both the samples was done for the parameters like compressive strength, tensile strength and flexural strength. After the completion of 28 days the strength of metal fiber reinforced material concrete was found increased when compared with the strength of plain cement concrete. This study was conducted with M30 cement.
