Abstract

The concrete is the most significant material which is almost used in every form of civil engineering construction. The efficiency of the concrete at the construction level is mainly enhanced by some of its properties such as good compressive strength, durability, specific gravity etc. but at same time as every material or system possess some limitations so does concrete which namely comprise of brittleness, low tensile strength, low impact strength, heavy weight etc.Since it possess greater number of advantages, therefore it become mandatory to add a suitable material which in turn can enhance its mechanical properties. Management and disposal of waste at proper designated places is one of the major challenges, as a result of which there is considerable implications on the environment. Thus waste utilization in civil engineering construction is considered as appropriate and attractive alternative for disposal and shielding environmental degradation. The paper provides a comprehensive summary of experimental approaches used by various authors to add PET shredders as replacement of coarse aggregate, fine aggregate and also are used as fibers in concrete in order to enhance the mechanical properties of concrete which not only are eco-friendly but at the same time approach is techno-economical for the commercial use.

Key Words

PET, coarse aggregate, concrete, environmental degradation, mechanical properties.
