Abstract:
The primary objective of this study is to investigate the practicality, versatility and feasibility of utilizing recycled glass as a concrete aggregate in the form of: fine aggregates, coarse aggregates and fine glass powders. Much of the glass produced in the United States is discarded, stockpiled or land filled. In 2007 about 13.6 million tons of waste glass were generated in the United States, and 76 percent of this glass was disposed of in landfills. This pattern has influenced environmental organizations to pressure the professional community to lower the amount of glass being discarded as well as find use to the non-recycled glass in new applications. In relation, the recycling of waste glass as a component in concrete gives waste glass a sustainable alternative to land filling and therefore makes it economically viable. A variety of public and private research was investigated to understand the limitations of glass concrete and its properties. Results found were promising as strength tests showed the glass concrete mixtures in question to have moderate to high strengths which shows that a concrete derived from recycled glass could be effectively applied to a multitude of services including structural applications.
