Experimental Study of Coarse Aggregates and Fine Aggregates Replaced By Ceramic Waste and Quarry Dust
Concrete is one of the important construction material used in the world of all engineering works including the infrastructure development proved that, it is a cheap material and its constituents are widely available in nature. Due to wide spread usage and fast infrastructure development in all over the world, there is shortage of natural aggregates, Such as fine aggregate and course aggregate. These materials are available with high cost, to prevent this the fine aggregate and course aggregate can be replaced with waste materials. In this project work fine aggregates will replaced by quarry sand and course aggregate will replaced by ceramic waste accordingly in the range of 0%, 10%, 20%, & 30% by weight of M-25 grade concrete. Sieve analysis is done for Ceramic waste and Quarry dust for the replacement course aggregate and fine aggregate. Concrete mixtures were prepared, tested and compared in terms of compressive strength to the conventional concrete. These tests were carried out to evaluate the strength properties for 7, 21 and 28 days.
