Investigation of Properties of Fresh and Hardened Concrete Containing Waste Glass Powder as Partial Replacement of Cement

Gaurav Shrivastava | Archana Tiwari [5]

Abstract: Waste glass when grounded to very fine powdered form particle size finer than 100 micron, shows some pozzolanic activities as it contains high percentage of silica (SiO2) and therefore this waste material can replace cement partially, In this work, an attempt has been made to find out the strength of concrete containing waste glass powder as pozzolanic material. Cement replacement by waste glass powder in the range 4 % to 28 % with increment of 4 % have been studied. Replacement of 16 % cement by waste glass powder was found to produce almost same strength as that of control mix.

Keywords: Waste Glass Powder WGP, Pozzolana, Compressive strength, Flexural strength, Workability
