Experimental Investigation On Steel Fiber Concrete Using Plastics

Date of Publication :7th June 2016

Abstract: This paper presents experimental behaviour of steel fiber (lathe waste) and plastics in concrete. In this experimental study the total of 36 numbers of concrete cubes and cylinders added with plastic and lathe are tested, by keeping lathe waste percentage as constant as 1.5% and the percentage of plastic varies at 0%, 0.2%,0.4%,0.6%,0.8%,1% to the weight of concrete to examine compressive strength and splitting tensile strength. The experimental study indicates that the addition of plastics at the range of 0.2% to 0.4% improves the compressive strength and at the range of 0.6% to 0.8% improves the splitting tensile strength of lathe waste concrete
