Abstract: This research paper deals with the mechanical properties of translucent concrete. Translucent concrete block is prepared by inserting the optical fibers from one side to other. The casted translucent concrete cubes are tested for mechanical properties and compare the results with mechanical properties. The cost analysis is carried out for both the concretes. Results show the improved tensile strength and similar compressive strength of translucent concrete than conventional concrete.
Keywords: Translucent Concrete, Optical fibers, Wooden Moulds and Total Internal Reflection.
Scope of the Article: Concrete Engineering
