Abstract

This paper describes the experimental investigation of relationship between splitting tensile strength and flexural strength with the compressive strength of concrete containing waste PET as fine aggregates replacement. Waste PET was reprocesses and used as the artificial fine aggregate at the replacement volume of 25%, 50% and 75%, Cylindrical and prism specimens were tested to obtain the compressive, splitting tensile and flexural strength at the age of 28 days. Based on the investigation, a relationship for the prediction of splitting tensile and flexural strength was derived from the compressive strength of concrete containing waste PET as fine agglegate replacement.
