Comparative Study of Flexural Strength of M30 Grade Concrete Using Glass Powder in Comparison with Conventional Concrete

Vengala Shriram and Ganesan Ramachandran

Abstract

Aim: The study’s goal is to assess the differences in flexural strength between both traditional concrete and innovative concrete based on glass particles.
Method: The experiments were divided into two groups. Each group includes 18 different specimens. The 1st group is made with addition of glass powder and the 2nd group is conventional concrete. During the preparation of concrete different types of materials and machinery is used. The pre-test power is determined with 80% and with alpha value of 0.05 and confidence interval (CI) is 95%. In concrete, fine aggregate is partially replaced by 20% of glass powder. Flexural strength test was performed on a beam specimen with flexural testing machine.
Results: Version 21 of SPSS was used to perform the independent sample t-test. Conventional concrete has a mean flexural strength of 12.9111 N/mm2 and glass powder-based concrete with a 14.9611 N/mm2 mean flexural strength. To assess the data, a t-test for independent samples is used. P = 0.000 (p < 0.05) was used to indicate significance. This shows that the two approaches have a statistically significant difference. The standard deviation is 0.66145, 0.73196, and the standard error is 0.15591, 0.17252, with the mean value being 12.91 N/mm2 , 14.77 N/mm2.
Conclusion: The strength of the concrete’s flexural component is greatly increased when new glass powder-based concrete is utilized in place of conventional concrete.
