Abstract
Concrete is the main material of construction. It consist of cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water as main ingredients. Due to development in the countries the consumption of the cement and other building materials is more. Also the use of unfriendly materials to environment such as Plastic usage is more. As plastics are non-biodegradable common environmental polluting materials. In present study the experimental investigation is carried out on waste plastic fibre reinforced concrete. Where the waste plastic is used as the reinforcement in different percentage (0%, 0.5%, 1%, 1.5%, 2%) and the mechanical properties of the concrete like compressive strength, split tensile, flexural strength and ductility factors are studied. It is found that usage of plastic in the concrete increases the performance of the concrete.
