Abstract

The field of concrete Technology is under going vast changes in these days. Many different types of concretes are revolutionizing the construction industry. Among them the fibre reinforced concrete, ferrocement, polymer concrete, ready mix concrete etc. are playing very important role. The fibre reinforced concrete in which the fibres are dispersed randomly has many applications in civil engineering field. The plastic is causing an environmental pollution because it is a non-biodegradable material. The plastics are causing the environmental pollution. The plastics being non biodegradable material do not decay and it even spoil the fertility of land, similarly another pollution causing industrial waste is Red mud. Red mud is a residue from aluminium factories where bauxite is used as ore for the production of aluminium. The disposal of this red mud has become a problem to the industries. Along with this it causes environmental pollution. This Paper presents the results of waste plastic fibre reinforced concrete when redmud is added in it. Different percentages of waste plastic fibres are used in the concrete containing red mud. The strength properties of waste plastic fibres reinforced concrete like Compressive strength, Tensile strength, Flexural strength and Impact strength are studied along with workability characteristics.
