Bond strength determination between coconut shell

The bond between steel and concrete is one of the essential properties affecting the performance of reinforced structural members. Bond strength is responsible for the transfer of forces between the two materials ensuring strain compatibility and composite action. In this study, the bond strength property of reinforced coconut shell aggregate concrete was investigated by pull-out test. The

Plastic Recycling and the Plastic Recycling Process

The Plastic Recycling Process. The simplest of plastic recycling processes involves collecting, sorting, shredding, washing, melting, and pelletizing. The actual particular processes vary based on plastic resin or type of plastic product. Most plastic recycling facilities use the following two-step process:

Plastic & Land — The Conscious Challenge

Plastic & Land. Today, millions of tons of plastic that are swirling around the world’s oceans have grabbed a lot of media attention. But many are not aware that plastic pollution arguably poses a bigger threat to the plants and animals – including humans – who are based on land. Only 9% of all plastic waste ever produced has been recycled.

Material Handling and Waste Management at a Construction

You can separate the waste including concrete and aggregate, soil and sand, wood materials, brick and blocks, roofing, plastic, and packaging materials. You can ensure minimization by reusing and recycling of construction waste materials on site. In general you can expect to recycle and reuse 45% of the waste materials and that is a big saving.
