Abstract

In order to make concrete industry sustainable, the use of waste materials in place of scarce natural
resources is one of the best approaches. An enormous quantity of waste glass is generated all around the world. In India,
0.7% of total urban waste generated comprises of glass. In this study, fine aggregates were partially replaced by waste
glass in different ratios (10%, 20%, 30% and 40%) by weight for two different concrete grades (M-25 and M-30). The
fresh concrete was tested for workability and concrete specimens were subjected to various non-destructive& destructive
tests after 28 days of curing, to assess the effect of this replacement on properties of concrete.
From the results, it was found that the slump of concrete containing waste glass as fine aggregate replacement
decreased with increasing waste glass content with some loss of workability. The destructive and non- destructive tests
revealed an increase in concrete strength with 20% waste glass replacement compared to conventional concrete. The
mixes with waste glass replacement showed a more consistent structure under ultrasonic pulse velocity assessment. The
study indicated that Waste glass can effectively be used as fine aggregate replacement (up to 20%) without loss of
strength.
