|Translucent concrete allows light to pass through it because of the presence of optical fibers within the opaque concrete wall. Light is transmitted from one surface of the side wall to the other wall, because the presence of the optical fibers strands along the width of the wall, which allows the light to pass through them. The principle objective of the project is to design translucent concrete blocks with the use plastic optical fibers of varying diameter and then to analyse the amount of light transmittance by light transmittance test and then to compare the compression strength of translucent concrete and conventional concrete by varied diameter with same mix ratio and the diameter used were 0.9mm and 2mm respectively. If the spacing between the setup increased means the illuminance of light is decreased. The performance of translucent concrete specimens made by using different dosages and spacings of Plastic Optical Fibers is investigated. The results evidently shows that translucent concrete can be successfully used as a energy efficient construction material for sustainable construction.|
