Abstract

Wood ash is generated as residual/waste from combustion done in boilers at pulp and paper mills, steam power plants, and other thermal power generating facilities. Since wood is a renewable resource for energy and an environmentally friendly material, there is an increased requirement of using waste wood for the purpose of energy production thus leading to formation of more wood ash waste. The study focuses on incorporation of wood ash in combination with ordinary Portland cement while using it for various structural works. A critical review study in sieve analysis, consistency, and water absorption, setting time and slump tests of wood ash added to OPC will produce significant results to emphasize the detailed study process. Uncontrolled burning of saw dust to form wood ash is used as a partial replacement of cement, thereby changing its physical and chemical properties. These properties are found somewhat similar to fly ash. The concrete mixes are replaced with the amorphous wood ash as an admixture of cement having grain size less than 75 microns in proportions of 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% and 30% by weight of cement. In this Study, a research work is conducted for determining the change in workability or consistency of concrete mix, compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength, etc., along with review of some durability properties. Foundry Sand is used as fine aggregate to obtain efficient results.
