Abstract:

Light transmitting concrete allows light to pass through it because of the presence of optical fibers within the opaque concrete wall. The objective of this project is to make transparent concrete blocks with the use of optical fibers. Compressive tests further carried on our conventional concrete samples and different trial 1 %, 2 %, 3 %, 4 % and 5 % optical fibers in conventional concrete with addition of 1.5 % GI fibers. A very small percentage of plastic optical fibers of 4 % of surface area, transmit a light intensity worth of 45.3% at a distance of 15 cm from the face of wall. As percentage of optical fiber increases, the compressive strength of concrete decreases. While add 1.5% of GI fibers in concrete result increased in compressive strength in LTC.
