Effects Of Broken Glass As A Partial Replacement Of Granite In The Production Of Concrete
The importance of coarse aggregate in concrete cannot be overemphasized. Glass forms a major component of solid waste in many countries and can be recycled after usage. Although, small proportion used by consumers has been recycled and reuse while about 70-80% is disposed to the land-fill and this constitutes to environmental waste. This paper investigated the suitability of glass as partial or full replacement of conventional aggregate (crushed granite) in the production of concrete.
The aggregate (fine) was spread uniformly on a hard, clean and non porous surface. Thereafter, cement was added until uniformity in mix was achieved. After which the coarse aggregates in DownloadViews: 160
