Paper Title
Concrete with Recycled EPS Granules
  Hasan Jasim Mohammed,  Hussein Ali Marei

This study objective is to investigate the mechanical properties of concrete incorporating recycled expanded polystyrene (EPS) granules. To improve the environment, recycled EPS try to use in concrete. The experimental test uses recycled EPS concrete and exchanges 0%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 35%, 45%, and 55% of the coarse aggregate with recycled EPS granules. While, Silica fume (SF) partially replaced 10% of the cement’s weight. The mechanical tests achieved such as compressive strength, tensile strength and density. The results display that the reduction values of the compressive strength, tensile strength and density of recycled EPS concretes with increase recycled EPS particles ratio about 53%, 36% and 27%, respectively, related to normal concrete. The recycled EPS used in EPS concrete with ratios of 10%, 15%, 20%, 35% and 45% resist the applied loads acceptably and are consequently better than a ratio of 55%. The recycled EPS is suitable in concrete and meets requirements.

Keywords- Recycled EPS, EPS concrete, compressive strength, tensile strength, density.
