This study investigates and reports on the usage of low density poly ethylene (LDPE) granules in place of coarse aggregate while constructing concrete cubes and cylinders. Concrete cubes and cylinders made of LDPE were hand cast, and test concrete's strength was then empirically assessed in terms of split tension and compression. It has been discovered that the compression and split tension strengths of plastic-replaced concrete can be on par with those of ordinary concrete. The current study focuses on concrete mixes containing LDPE granules (0, 10, 20, and 30) used in place of some of the coarse aggregate to reduce the dead weight of the building. To determine the strength parameter, this mixture was compressed and divided tensioned into cubes and cylinders.
