Paper Title
Re-Use of Polyethylene Plastic Waste In Concrete
  M Mahesh,  B Venkat Narsimha Rao,  CH. Satya Sri

The increase in population and the changed lifestyle has resulted in a significant rise in the quantity of plastic waste. This project in particular deals with the possibility of using the waste polyethylene as partial replacement of fine or coarse aggregate in concrete. Concrete with 2%, 4%, 6% pulverized/non pulverized polyethylene material is prepared after doing the mix design. Various tests on cement like specific gravity, fineness, setting time, etc., tests on coarse and fine aggregates like sieve analysis, fineness modulus, specific gravity, etc. are performed. Mix design using IS Code method is done and cubes and cylinders are cast for M25 grade concrete with and without plastics and tests on concrete like slump, cube tests and cylinder tests are performed to understand their behavior and usefulness as replacement. The standard mechanical properties of concrete like compression strength, split tensile strength are tested and compared with the results of standard specimen.

Keywords- Plastic, Cement, Fine aggregate, Coarse aggregate, Water
