USE OF FINE CRUSHED BOTTLE GLASS SAND AND PARTIAL CEMENT REPLACEMENT IN CONCRETE

Artifical fine aggregate, comparable in grading to river sand, was made by crushing beer bottles in the laboratory hammer mill. Very fine fraction of glass, comparable in fineness to portland cement, was produced by grinding crushed glass in the laboratory ball - mill. Crushed glass was used to replace sand in concrete; fine glass powder and fly - ash were used as cement addition. For particular types of portland cement, glass and pozzolana, the effects of addition of fine glass aggregate and fine glass aggregate plus powder glass on some of the properties of plastic and hardened concrete were studied. Long-term dimensional changes in concrete were also investigated. (A). (TRRL)
