STUDY ON PERFORMANCE OF CONCRETE BY PARTIAL REPLACEMENT OF CEMENT BY USING GLASS WASTE POWDER IN ADDITION WITH SISAL FIBRE
In concrete the use of fibres and diverse sort of pozzolanic ingredients are generally used to enhance its mechanical properties. The study focused on utilization of Glass Waste Powder (GWP) as partial replacement of cement, and Sisal fibre to face up to cracking and to help in strengthening of concrete. The custom of GWP and sisal fibre improves the shear strength, tensile strength, impact strength and enhanced fatigue and crack resistance. Study emphases on the compression, split tensile and flexural strength properties of M20 grade concrete. The combination of GWP and Sisal fibre are added to the concrete with variable proportion of 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% and 0%, 0.5%, 1% and 1.5% respectively. Cubes, cylinders, and beams are among the concrete specimens cast. Subsequently success of curing process the concrete specimens are verified at 28 days strengths and the strength achieved due to the addition of GWP and Sisal fibre is related with the conventional concrete. The results of the experiments show that adding 1% Sisal Fibre and 20% GWP to concrete boosts the overall strength of the concrete.
