Role Of Glass Powder In Mechanical Strength Of Concrete
It is well known fact that non-biodegradable materials disposed into the land, results soil pollution. Also it is
fascinated to use these non-biodegradable materials for construction purpose. In the present study waste glass powder which
possesses pozzolana property is used as a partial replacement of cement in concrete. To study the role of glass powder in
concrete, the mechanical properties such as compressive strength, flexural strength, and Modulus of elasticity of M20 grade
concrete were determined with different percentages of glass powder such as 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, and 40%. The specimens
were tested at the age of 7 days and 28 days. Also quality of concrete was determined by UPV test. The results indicate that
the concrete with using waste glass powder were able to increase the workability and strength of concrete.
