Abstract Share this page

Thermal industry waste - fly ash is generated in huge quantities. The large quantities of human hair, unfortunately, is not always well managed or utilized. These wastes can be recycled, such as by incorporating in brick-making. This way the fly ash bricks are made a ‘greener’ building material and the discarded natural wastes can be re-utilized, avoiding otherwise wasteful landfill and harmful open incineration. The aim of the present study is to investigate the strength and water absorption of fiber fly ash bricks made of human hair fiber and fly ash. This study examined the various properties of fly ash bricks made by adding human hair to a fly ash brick mix. The fibers were replaced within the range of 0.1-0.7% by weight of fly ash. In the present study, 8 different mixes of fiber fly ash bricks are tested for parameters like: crushing strength, weight, water absorption and cost.
