Abstract: Concrete is a building material which is being utilized excessively in the world adjacent to water. The nature is influenced due to the extraction of raw matter and also because of the evolution of gases like CO2 . In the ongoing years, there is a speedy growth in the production of waste materials like glass wastes, plastic, Ground Granulated Blast furnace Slag, silica fume, coal ash, wood ash, rice husk ash, etc. Controlling and discarding issues emerge due to these wastes and inflict havoc on the nature. So as to curtail these issues, the waste materials are used as additives or partial substitutions for cement and aggregates in construction field. This paper focuses on strength properties and durability of concrete containing glass fibers by partial substitution of cement and fine aggregate with GGBS and Coal ash respectively. For this work, mix design using IS method is prepared for M30 grade and the tests are conducted for various dosages of glass fibers as 0.5, 1%, 1.5% and 2% by weight of cement. The substitution degree of GGBS is 30% and that of coal ash is 20%. The obtained outcomes are contrasted with conventional concrete.
Keywords: Coal Ash, Durability, Glass Fibers, Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag.
