Project Information
Title: A New Eco-Friendly Method for Increasing Blast and Impact Resistance of Reinforced Concrete Buildings
Subject: Engineering
Subcategory: Building Technology
Grade level: Middle School - Grades 7-9
Academic Level: Ordinary
Project Type: Engineering
Cost: high
Awards: Community Impact Award
Affiliation: Google Science Fair
Year: 2016
Materials: Aluminium cans, different concrete samples
Techniques: Impact load Tests
Equipment: Mechanical testing machine
Concepts: Blast and impact resistance buildings
Description: The objective of this project is to develop an external wall model by using waste aluminium cans in order to minimize the effect of explosion and impact loads in buildings. Four experimental groups reinforced with cans and four control samples consisting of normal concrete were tested under low velocity impact load and high velocity impact load. Results compared.
