Abstract:
Abstract: Concrete is a homogeneous mixture making a single product. Transparent concrete is a concrete based building material with light-Transmitting properties due to embedded light optical elements usually Optical fibres. This concrete can also be used for aesthetic application by applying the optical fibres in concrete. There are different types of fibres used in concrete for increasing the strength aspect and durability. Optical fibres are one which helps for transmission of light through fibre. In our project, the end-lite type of fibre is used to increase the aesthetic appearance of the concrete. The concept of transparent concrete can also be used for light transmission in the wall panel which is exposed to direct sun light which transmit the image but not completely transparent. This type of concrete can be installed at a very low cost and increasing the visual appeal. The application can be used in decorating the interior of a hall or lobby and the ceiling to glow in dark by external lighting source and during day time the concrete glows by the light transmission from natural resource. The prototype study is made and the concrete is made decorative and durable also. In the present study, the mix design of M40 concrete is adopted. Optical fibres are reinforced in to the concrete by 5% and 10% based on surface area. Different tests like Compressive strength test, split tensile strength, Flexural strength test were carried on the specimen. The results evidently show that as the percentage of optical fibre increases the strength also increases. Keywords: Transparent Concrete, Waste Glass, Admixture, Optical Fibre
