Transparent concrete is the new type of concrete introduced in todays world which carries special property of light transmitting due to presence of light Optical fibres. Which is also known as translucent concrete or light transmitting concrete, it is achieved by replacing coarse aggregates with transparent alternate materials (Optical fibres). The binding material in transparent concrete may be able to transmit light by using clear resins the concrete mix. The concrete used in industry in present time is the general concrete which consists the fundamental materials i.e, water, cement, aggregate (which is coarse or fine) containing physical properties as- Grey in colour, no transparancy, high density which blocks the possibility of distinguishing bodies, shapes through it. where as transparent concrete due to the presence of Optical fibre allows to identify bodies, shapes through it. The main pur pose of using transparent concrete is to utilize sunlight as a light source following to result in saving or reducing power consomption for the same pur pose, is Can also be used for architectural purpose for new designs and attractive partition Wall. The Paper confines with the need of transparent concrete at present to utilize the sunlight and for architecture technologies. The new type of concrete Can satisfy the green energy saving with its own Natural properties.
