Abstract

An experimental investigation was undertaken to study whether the strength behavior of concrete made with glass aggregate
differed significantly from that made with natural aggregates when concretes cured in low temperatures. The aim of the
research work presented is to examine the strength behavior of glass concrete when cured under freezing conditions at -15°C
and -10°C. The results showed that when glass concrete is cured at low curing temperature, the 28 day compressive strength is
higher than control concrete. Glass concrete that had been cured at low temperatures and subsequently allowed normal curing
recovered 100% of its strength while the recovery for control concrete was of about 50%. These findings suggest that concrete
made with recycled glass could have an important application, on cold temperature concreting.
