Experimental Investigation on Glass Powder as Partial Replacement of Cement for M-30 Concrete

Authors(2) :-Gulezehra Hussain, Gajendra Verma

Glass is needed in several forms in today’s life. Its life is limited, and after use it is either stored into sharp edged or sent to landfills. As we know glass is non-biodegradable, landfills does not recommend any friendly environment solution. Since glass is non-biodegradable, landfills do not provide an environment friendly solution. In India as a most developing country facing shortage of post consumer's disposal waste site and it's become very serious problems. Hence, there is strong need to utilize waste glasses. The aim of the present experimental investigation was to use waste glass powder as a replacement of cement to assess the Compressive, Split tensile Strength and Flexural strength for M30 grades of cement concrete and durability, pozzolanic activity of fine glass powder in concrete, compare its performance with percentage, size of glass powder and also perform alkalinity test on waste glass powder. The results found that 15% addition of GLP increase the higher compressive strength and flexural Strength, replacement of cement , for study of size effect of glass powder i.e. Initial strength gain is very less due to addition of glass powder on 7th day but it increases on the 28th day, with addition of glass powder increase the higher compressive strength and flexural Strength, replacement of glass powder in cement by 7, 14, 21& 28 days of curing and result was found that 39.2 N/mm2, 41.33 N/mm2, 45.01 N/mm2, 49.18 N/mm2, 5.39 N/mm2, and 5.57 N/mm2, 5.4 N/mm2 and 5.67 N/mm2 respectively ,and also glass powder size less than 90 micron is very effective in enhancement of strength. It is also found that the average pH values 12.59 observed from all the different samples of alkalinity test showed that the samples tested found to be more alkaline nature and hence more resistant towards corrosion. The alkalinity test of GLP performed good results on adding concrete.
