Abstract: Concrete is a widely used material in all construction work. The aim of the project is to study the behavior of concrete with replacement of E waste. The fine aggregate and coarse aggregate are naturally available due to increase in demand it is over exploited. The waste utilization is sustainable solution to environmental problems Waste from electric and electronic equipment is used as an E waste replacement for coarse aggregate in concrete which is used in the construction .Therefore the effects have been made to study the use of E waste components as a partial replacement of coarse aggregate in 5%, 10% and 15%. To determine the optimum percentage of E waste that can be replaced for coarse aggregate the compressive strength and split tensile strength of concrete to be studied. After determining the optimum percentage of E waste that can be replaced with coarse aggregate. The comparison of the conventional and optimum percentage of E waste replaced with concrete has been done.
Keywords: Concrete, E-waste, Construction, Compressive Strength, Split Tensile Strength, Coarse Aggregate, Waste Utilization, Recycling.
