Reinforcement of High Density Polyethylene Strips and Fibers

Vivek R [5] | Dr. Mariamma Jacob

Abstract: The amount of wastes has increased year by year and it is necessary to utilize the wastes effectively. This study presents a simple way of using the recycled plastic waste in the field of civil engineering as reinforcing material. This study describes a comparison on the inclusion of recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE) in the form of strips and fibers with clayey soil at different mixing ratios in percentage by weight respectively. A significant improvement in the strength is observed due to the inclusion of HDPE strips and fibers.

Keywords: soil, HDPE High Density Polyethylene, Reinforcement, Strength improvement
