Utilization of Waste Polythene as Low Cost and Eco-Friendly Material in PPC Concrete IJTSRD
The rapid growth of urbanization and industrialization in the world leads to lot of infrastructure development. And this creates several problems like shortage of construction materials, increased wastes production, etc. From many decades concrete is a versatile material for construction. Concrete is a mixture of cement, coarse aggregate, fine aggregate and water. Now days, construction industries is in need of finding cost-effective and cheap materials for increasing the strength of concrete structures. Hence an attempt has been made in this analysis or investigations to study the impact of addition of domestic waste or very cheap material like polythene waste. In this paper, there is a reuse of waste polythene as partial replacement of coarse aggregate in M25 concrete conforming to IS:10262-2009 guidelines was designed as the referral concrete with the mix proportion of (1:1.54:3 ) and water-cement ratio(W/C) of 0.45 by weight taking with 0.6% super plasticizer dose by weight of cement. It is observed that, the compressive strength increases up to the optimum percentage of waste polythene (0.80% of weight of cement) and after that it tends to decrease. I also observed that, the flexural strength increases with increase in percentage of waste polythene in concrete. However, the optimum dose of polythene is 0.80% (by weight of cement).
