The article presents an experimental study on concrete blocks prepared by using waste types such as fly ash as a cement substitution, waste of plastic bottles and wood waste as replacements for sand and polyester fibers waste as a dispersed reinforcement. The mechanical characteristics of concrete with fly ash and polyester fibers were determined. The influence of the type and dosage of waste on the mechanical strength is discussed. The concretes with fly ash and different dosages of waste were used for manufacturing hollow blocks that were tested in compression, and the behavior under load was analyzed. Failure in compression of hollow blocks was gradual and ductile. View Full-Text
