Abstract: Due to more attacks on Gaza city using heavy weapons against it, like missiles and rockets that destroyed many reinforced concrete homes which were either fully or partially destroyed , Because of these attacks many cracks occurred in many reinforced concrete homes. The aim of this research is to replace ratio of coarse aggregate by plastic granules for mixing concrete to give concrete some flexibility to make it stronger to bear tensile forces and increase its strength, as well as making it more durable, as we know the plastic doesn't decompose with weather and give earlier warning for collapses. The study of this material with concrete by replacement ratios, as follow 0%, 2.5%, 5%, 10% and make required tests. These tests are Compressive strength test, Impact test, through 28 days (static, dynamic), and recording results and study relationships in these cases as well as recording success or failure. On the other hand, Plastics are inexpensive, lightweight and durable materials, which can readily be molded into a variety of products that are used in a wide range of applications. In this research, the results showed an increase of the impact load by increasing ratio of Plastic Granules (PG), and increasing with Deflection (Def. ) which helps in preventing sudden collapse. However, there is decrease in Compressive strength (C.S ) by increasing ratio of PG. Also, this research found the optimum ratio of volume to PG which is between ( 1-2.5% ).
