Abstract
The amounts of waste glass have been increasing considerably without being recycled, so cumulative the threat to community health due to the lack of land area. This risingProblematic of waste glass in the India can be relieved if new disposal options additional than landfill can be found. The main aim is to examine to increase the compressive strength over a series of glass percentages. By exhausting glass waste in concrete works,so the awareness is to substitute the crushed glass as much of the natural aggregates and sand as likely to reduce the amount of disposable wastes, as well, but we cannot add too much amount of glass to the concrete.Therefore, samples of the common waste glass materials(such as glass bottles)were collected and crushed to be included popular concrete by way of a partial occupant in the concrete mix replacing fine aggregates.It was proposed to know the strength properties of concrete by conducting tests on the concrete blocks with a nominal mix of 1:1.5:3, by replacing fine aggregate with crushed glass in different proportions (10%, 20%, 30%, 40%) with a water-cement ratio of 0.5.Finally, for concrete mixes havingdissimilar proportion of fine crushed glass, it isdecided that there was negligible effects on the compressive strength and small reduction on the splitting tensile strength and flexural strength of the mix.
