PROJECT REPORT ON STUDY OF BEHAVIOR OF CONCRETE BY PARTIAL REPLACEMENT OF COARSE AGGREGATES BY RECYCLED PLASTICS GRANULES


Aim:
The project aims at use of recycled plastic in concrete as a partial replacement of Coarse aggregate to obtain light weight concrete.
The waste plastic of LDPE (Low density poly Ethylene ) is collected from Bangalore south localities and mixed with OPC and sand in varying proportions (0%,10%, 20%,30%). The compressive strength for each variant is to be determined in laboratory.
Objective

To compare the compressive strength and Density of Recycled Plastics used as Coarse Aggregate for Constructional Concrete with the Conventional concrete
 To know its applications in construction industry.
 To reduce the pressure on naturally availability materials by replacing it with Recycled plastic aggregate


To compare the physical characteristics of natural aggregate with Plastic recycled aggregate.
 To study the behavior of fresh and hardened concrete with polymer waste coarse aggregate and compare its properties to those of conventional concrete
 To produce lightweight polymer concrete for multi-purpose use

Introduction:

Waste disposal is getting harder and harder day by day and environment hazard caused by plastic is increasing day by day, so it is necessary to minimize the quantities of materials that are delivered to landfills.
The threat due to leaching of non-biodegradable materials like waste plastics, scrap tires. e-waste may contaminate the soil and ground water. If the production of waste cannot be prevented, then it is attractive to create an alternative use in another process instead of disposal.
The benefits of plastic recycling can be economically advantageous, due to abundant availability lower cost for mixing with other variants like concrete, bitumen etc.
The use of such plastic wastes in concrete will contribute to the sustainability of the concrete design and the natural environment.
