Abstract
In a growing country like India a huge amount of industrial wastes are polluting the environment. With a view to the above, the study aims at utilization of such industrial waste by product for value added application. In addition, the waste can improve the properties of construction materials. The recycled glass has been used in the form of powder. The glass powder will tested with concrete and mortar. Cement was replaced by Glass Powder in the proportion of 0%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% for M30 Grade of concrete with 0.50 water cement ratio. Experimental investigation on strength properties of glass powder reinforced concrete composite is carried out and compared with normal conventional concrete. The optimum dosage of glass powder reinforced concrete for various mix designation is plotted graphically. The result showed that with increase in percentage of glass powder compressive strength of concrete is also increase. The advantages of this project are that the replacement of glass powder is economically cheap as well as a superior concrete can be made.
