Non-degradable wastes has been a major issue now in the fourth coming century as more and more of these wastes are piling up in our world today and being disposed of in landfill areas without being recycled. These wastes take up a very long period of time to decompose. And due to the availability of raw material is very less due to higher use of concrete. Researchers have been done to partially utilize these wastes as the final products for construction materials such as concrete. To overcome this problem replaced the cement with glass powder and fine aggregate with steel slag. The primary objective of the project is to increase the strength of the concrete by replacing fine aggregate by steel slag and cement by glass powder. Mix design M30 was casted by replacement of cement with Glass powder by weight at 5%, 10%, 15% and fine aggregate with steel slag by weight at 5%,10%,15%.
Cubes,prisms, Cylinders were prepared for testing after seven, and twenty eight days natural process in water served as the control. Results are obtained by the tests like compressive strength, flexure strength and split tensile strength. Even it is compared with the conventional concrete for the difference between them.
