Divya Prabha V M, Dr. Sunilaa George


Utilization of waste materials for new products which in turn minimize the heavy burden on the nation’s landfill. Recycling of plastic helps to reduce the high rates of plastic pollution. Lots of journals are published about the utilization of waste materials. Concrete is most widely used man made construction material in the world.

This study is aimed to determine the shear behavior of Polyethylene terephthalate fibre reinforced concrete of M 25 mix proportion. The plastic bottle were shredded into fibres of specific size and shape. This study deals with different aspect ratio of 4, 8 and 12 respectively. The pet fibres were added in proportions 0.5%, 1%and 1.5% respectively. Different tests were conducted and the results obtained from the tests are compared with control specimens.
