Abstract: This examination intends to use the electrical Waste Printed Circuit Board (WPCBs) as partial substitution of coarse aggregate in concrete. WPCBs are supplanted by 0%, 5%, 10%, 15% and 20%. Compressive quality, Durability and self-compacting properties were considered by pressure test at 7days, 14days and 28days, sulfate test at 56days, chloride test at 56 days. To improve the rheological exhibition B233 added by 1.5% to the weight of bond and 12% to the weight of silica fume were supplanted the bond to improve the mechanical properties of e concrete. A blend configuration arranged for M30 evaluation concrete by Indian standard strategy at water proportion of 0.375. The outcome demonstrates that the addition of silica fume improves the mechanical property of e-concrete however decreased flow character. 5% of reusing the PCBs as coarse total can accomplish the equal quality and execution contrasted with customary cement.
