Strength and Chloride Permeable Properties of Concrete with High Density Polyethylene Wastes

Author(s): Shanmugapriya M and Helen Santhi M

The present study investigates the mechanical and chloride permeable properties of concrete with fine and coarse aggregates have been partially replaced with high density poly ethylene (HDPE) waste. Totally six different concrete mixes of M25 grade were designed with partial replacement of fine aggregate by 5% ,10%, 15% and coarse aggregate by 10%, 15%, 20% with HDPE waste. The strength and durability properties such as compressive strength, flexural strength, split tensile strength and rapid chloride ion penetration of concrete with HDPE specimens were conducted and the tests results were compared with the control concrete.
