Abstract
It's been a long investigation to use waste materials in concrete. This paper discusses about evaluating the behaviour of M20 grade concrete with replacement of silica fume and plastic wastes as a replacement for cement and fine aggregate in various proportions. The concrete is casted with cement by replacing silica fume alone at 5%, 10% & 15%.Then for each percentage of silica fume, the crushed plastic wastes were replaced for fine aggregates at 10%, 20% and 30%. Ultimate Compressive strength, Flexural strength, Split tensile strength has been determined for different mix combinations of materials and these values are compared with the corresponding values of conventional concrete. The concrete with replacement upto 10% of silica fume and 20% of waste plastics were found to be optimum which possess high compressive, tensile and flexural strength than other specimens. It is also concluded that the use of industrial wastes such as plastics in concrete provides some advantages, like reduction in the use of natural resources, disposal of wastes, prevention of environmental pollution and energy saving

Key-Words / Index Term
