EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION ON CONCRETE USING PVC WASTE AS A PARTIAL REPLACEMENT OF FINE AGGREGATE
Keywords:PVC Waste, Concrete, Compressive Strength, Split Tensile Strength, Fine Aggregate
This paper ambitions to investigate the clean and hardened fine aggregate concretes that are prepared with using recycled plastic waste sourced from scraped PVC waste to interchange river sand as fine aggregates. A number of laboratories prepared concrete mixes were established, where river sand was once partially replaced by PVC plastic waste granules in percentages of 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% through volume. Two most important findings are recognized. The confident side indicates that the concrete prepared with a partial alternative through PVC was once lighter. Moreover, this study reveals that the compressive strength and Split tensile strength of the concretes were increased in mixing of PVC. The outcome gathered would kind a part of valuable know-how for recycling PVC Plastic waste in pleasant concrete mixes.
