The rapid growth of populations and usage of electronic products are increasing day by day in world wide. Especially developed countries and developing countries like United Nations India. Also the construction field also reached top of the core in last 2 to 3 decades. So that demand of cements, fine aggregate and coarse aggregate could be increased. Lagging of construction raw materials affects the growths of the construction field.to rectify these problems, the alternative construction materials could be use in constructions. The electronic wastes are used in concrete means to solve the quantity of E waste and also the demand of concrete raw materials. Here the E wastes are used in concrete as a coarse aggregate and the size of electronic waste are 12.5mm (crushed). E wastes are added in concrete at the percentages of 0%,5%,10%,15%.18% and 20%. The reinforced concrete beams are casted at M40 and M50 grade of concrete. This research paper described the performance of electronic wastes in various percentages at high performance concrete under the various loading conditions. Deflections and stiffness of the electronic waste reinforced concretes are determined. Finally the results show the behavior and performance of electronic wastes in reinforced concrete beams.
