Abstract: Waste glass can be a non-biodegradable substance and at this its drop on a land that becomes a very world organisation property selection. To look out a far higher response to cut back the ecological issues caused by disposable of waste glass is used as concrete manufacturing. Recycled glass as coarse mixture is used to prepare for various grade of concrete mix like M 20, M 40 and M 60 as an alternate for typical crushed stone for creating concrete. The physical and chemical characterize of recycled waste glass coarse mixture is examine and note the similarities with typical crushed stone aggregate. For each mix to hunt out out the mechanical strength of control concrete and RWGCA mixture concrete. Six numbers of cube size 100 × a hundred × 100 metric linear unit are cast. To check flexural behaviour, a hundred twenty five × two hundred × 1100 metric linear unit size of the beams are cast. Beam sections are created as below strengthened sections. For on prime of grade mix, three beams are created with typical crushed stone mixture & alternative 3 beams are created with RWG coarse mixture. All the beams are tested under two point loading. The flexural behaviour of beams are obtained. ANSYS software is used for finite element modeling and the results of experimental values are compared with ANSYS modeling.
