Experimental Study on Physical and Mechanical Properties of Concrete with fine Waste Glass ;;;;
Recently, as industrialization is rapidly growing and the standard of life is rising, the quantities of waste glasses have been hastily increased and most of them are not recycled but abandoned. It cause some problems such as the waste of natural resources and environmental pollution. Therefore, this study was conducted basic experimental research to analyze the possibilities of recycling of waste glasses(crushed waste glasses outbreaking from our country such as amber, emerald-green, flint and mixed) as fine aggregates for concrete. Test results of fresh concrete, slump and compacting factors decrease because grain shape is angular and air content increase due to involving small size particles so much in waste glasses. Also compressive, tensile and flexural strengths decrease with increase of the content of waste glasses. In conclusion, the content of waste glasses below 30% is reasonable and usage of pertinent admixture is necessary to obtain workability and air content.
