dc.description.abstractThe structural properties of cement-based mortars and concrete mixtures prepared with cross-linked polyethylene (XPE) plastic wastes resulting from thermosetting polymers have only been studied in a few studies. The XPE wastes cannot be recycled, highlighting the need to search for disposal methods and possibilities in the civil engineering construction. The main aim of this research is to see how XPE influences the flexural strength of reinforced concrete beams with maximum stirrups and the shear strength of reinforced concrete beams without stirrups. The addition of XPE to reinforced concrete beams minimized the ultimate shear load and post-diagonal cracking resistance, according to tests results. The reduction in water-to-cement ration as well as the addition of SBR and/or steel fibers increased the concrete bearing capacity, including the flexural and shear strengths of reinforced concrete beams.en_US
