Abstract:
ABSTRACT Concrete is the most important ingredient in the construction field. The increases quest for sustainable and ecofriendly materials in the construction industry has led to research on partial replacement of the conventional constituents of concrete by selected waste materials. In our project work is using Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), It is a non-biodegradable waste material which is coming from packaging industry. Concrete has to be designed based on density factor to accomplish reduction of the concrete self-weight with is ranging from 2000kg/m3 to 990kg/m3. Substituting partially or completely the coarse part of low weight aggregate (EPS Beads) with normal aggregates produces lightweight concrete that can achieve a reliable decent compressive strength. Substitution of various percentages of eps beads according to desirable design details for different proportion. Various tests was conducted for fresh and harden concrete to know physical and mechanical properties of concrete at age of 7, 14 and 28days. The outcome indicates that increasing the quantity of EPS beads there will be decreasing strength of concrete with reduction in density. Keywords: Fibers, Synthetic, Banana and Behaviour.
