Compressive and Tensile Strength Studies on E-Waste Cement Concrete with Silica Fume

P.Sudhakar,Vaishali G Ghorpade,H.Sudarsana Rao

The electronic industry is the world’s largest and fastest manufacturing industry. E-Waste has adverse effect on health, it has to be utilized in some manner to make it environment friendly. Consistently huge amounts of electronic things dispatched overseas, in any case, after their use time they become an intricate waste issue which comprises of numerous perilous substantial metals, acids, dangerous synthetic substances and non-degradable plastics. Numerous private firms are associated with gathering, disassembling, detachment, and sending out E-waste for recyclers. In this project, concrete specimens prepared with E-waste material will be subjected to compressive strength and Split tensile strength tests. 20 mm size of coarse aggregates is prepared with the E-waste material. Different concrete mixes are prepared by replacing normal coarse aggregate with e-waste material in ranges like 0%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% and 100%, for a concrete mix of M30. With replacement of coarse aggregate, cement is replaced with Silica fume with 0% and 10%. The impact of substitution of coarse aggregate by e-waste material and cement by Silica fume on the properties of concrete like compressive strength and Split tensile strength at the age of 28 days and 90 days will be determined.
