Use of PET bottles in Rigid Pavement – A Review
Publication Date : 23/07/2019
Now a day’s plastic waste is becoming curse to the human society. Generating disposable plastic bottles is becoming a major problem in many countries. PET bottles use has increase in day-to-day life. So, we will find out method to disposal of PET bottles. PET bottles were proposed to be used as either reinforcement in concretes or being casted as blocks. We will use PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) bottles as reinforcement to the concrete road to determine its strength and develop a way of disposal of PET bottles. Various types of PET bottles are used along its variation like strip of bottles, plain bottles and neck of bottles. These variation will effectively use in the whole project to determine the strength and will try to get positive outcome. Using waste plastic as a secondary material in construction projects would be a solution to overcome the crisis of producing large amount of waste plastics in one hand and improving the structure characteristics such as resistance against cracking on the other hand. To investigate the effects of adding plastic bottles in road pavement. Besides, the mixtures containing waste plastic showed significantly greater fatigue resistance than the conventional mixture.
