Abstract

This research paper seeks to optimize the benefits of using E Plastic Waste in the fiber form in concrete. The E Plastic waste (insulation wires) is shredded into fibers of specific size and shape. Several design concrete mixes with different percentages of waste plastic fibers for three aspect ratios, are casted into desire shape and size as per requirement of the tests. Each specimen was cured for 7, 14 and 28 days. The workability, compression, split tension and Flexure strength tests were carried out. The results are compared with control concrete. The improvement in mechanical properties of concrete was observed. The behavior of plastic incorporated concrete depending on sizes of fibers is resulted in this paper.
