Fiber Reinforced Self Compacting Concrete Using Domestic Waste Plastics as Fibres

R. Kandasamy and R. Murugesan    

Abstract: Fiber Reinforced Self Compacting Concrete (FRSCC) is a composite material consisting of cement based matrix with an ordered or random distribution of fiber which can be steel, nylon and polythene, etc., which offers several economical and technical benefits. In this study, domestic waste plastics (Polythene fibres) were used and the properties of concrete (viz., compressive strength, flexural strength, split tensile strength) are studied. The tests have been carried out as per EFNARC for fresh concrete and Indian Standard Code for hardened concrete.
