Bubble deck slab is an in-situ slab which is created by inserting voids in the form of bubbles which reduces dead weight and is an eco-friendly practice. Plastic waste is non – degradable and its disposal has become a matter of great concern to the environment. Bubbles can be created in various forms using recycled plastic. Recycling of plastic waste is of utmost importance to create an eco-friendly atmosphere. Bubble Deck technology is implemented in this project using Indian Standards and Indian codal Provisions (IS 456:2000) which has not been experimentally tested to-date. The major benefit of this project is that it makes useof non-degradable waste plastic thus a very eco-friendly practice. The project conducts trial on varying diameter of balls,. Since trials was done using the Indian Codes as benchmark, successful results can provide for provisions in Indian Code for creating Bubble Deck slab using plastic waste. The above technology is first of its kind using Indian Code as benchmark for design of Bubble Deck Slabs. Experimental results of the above project shows that there is no much reduction in strength and various aspects compared to normal reinforced concrete slab. Hence this is a highly innovative practice that can be implemented using Indian Standard codes which has not yet implemented in the Indian scenario.
