AbstractIn line with the development in the construction sector and continuous need for many of concrete structures that meet the need of continuous population increase in Iraq. It became necessary to think in concrete construction to be more economical through the use of alternative raw materials in concrete production. Also it helps to rid of materials that cause environmental problems.
The first objective of this paper is to produce concrete less expensive. Second, reduce pollution of the environment in terms of using a type of glass which cannot be recycled in other industries. This type of glass will be used as a raw material in the concrete production instead of cement or sand by specific rates.
Research results were carrying a good indicator about compressive strength when using a glass powder instead of cement; especially when the glass was grinding at a more time. When the compensation ratio instead of cement was 20%, and using glass was grinding by 16 hour; the results were a good. They were (31.99, 44.9, 51.64) MPa in age (7, 28, 56) respectively, compared with standard samples which were (22.4, 36.51, 43.2) MPa .
