Abstract

This paper objective is to study the formulation of a glass-sand mortar in order to enhance the use of crushed glass bottles in construction in Togo. The study involved conducting specimens of glass -sand mortar obtained by varying the rate of glass from sand. The study has revealed that the addition of glass increases the compressive strength and decreases the absorption rate of mortar containing sand.
