A Review on use of Ceramic waste as coarse Aggregate Replacement in Concrete
Publication Date : 29/07/2019
In today’s construction world concrete is largely used construction material all over globe. Concrete consist of cement, aggregates and water. Production of raw material for concrete making emits high amount of carbon and it is not good for environment. So need to use the waste material for concrete Production. Ceramic industry generate million tons of ceramic waste while manufacturing ceramic tiles. Up to 30% of waste is produce per year and huge part of it is used for land filling. Ceramic is non bio degradable waste and required thousands of years for degradation. The reused of ceramic tiles as aggregate in concrete has a positive effect on environment and economy. This study deals with reviewing the usage of ceramic waste tiles as coarse aggregate replacement in concrete and its effect on workability, compressive strength, splitting tensile strength and flexural strength of concrete.
