Utilization of Waste Plastic as a Partial Replacement of Fine Aggregate in a Concrete
This paper presents the utilization of recycled waste plastic as a fine aggregate in concrete. The same volume of
plastic fiber substitutes the various volume fraction of sand (0% to 8%). Physical and mechanical properties of the
composites produced are studied. Results show that the use of plastic waste as a partial replacement of sand contributes to
reduce the bulk density, decrease the air content, increase in compressive and flexural strength. This study ensures that
reusing waste plastic in concrete gives a positive approach to reduce the cost of material and helps in reducing the
