Abstract :

Concrete is the single most widely used building material throughout the world. Concrete is used in large amounts because it is only and extremely good building material. In this experimental study fine aggregate and coarse aggregate is partially replacement of vermiculite and ceramic waste. Use of vermiculite in concrete it will enhance the shrinkage and crack resistance, fire resistance and reduces environmental impact and also reduce the cost. In this study an attempt has been made to find the suitability of the ceramic waste as a possible substitute for conventional crushed stone Coarse aggregate. In this present study, an attempt has been made to study the mechanical properties of M30 grade concrete with 30% & 40% of partial replacement by vermiculite and ceramic waste .The concrete cubes is casted and tested for compressive strength after curing period of 7 &28 days. The integrated approach of working on safe disposal and utilization can lead to advantageous effects on the ecology and environmental also.
