EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF LATHE SCRAP AND GGBS IN CONCRETE

Conference Name :
The paper explains about the experimental study on strength properties of concrete with steel scrap. Steel scrap can be used as fibre which is collected from the lathe industries. Concrete with steel scrap used in construction industry reduces the disposal problem which is generated from lathe industries and dumping of these scraps contaminates the soil and groundwater, which creates a harmful effect to the environment. In addition, to get sustainable development and environmental benefits, lathe scrap with concrete is likely to be used. Test like compressive strength test were conducted and analyse the impact of steel scrap in concrete for 7 days and 28 days were carried out to find out the strength of concrete with steel scrap. Lathe scarps are the dumping materials which are collected from workshops and other steel lathe industries at lowest cost. The effect of steel scrap are similar to the steel fibre but they don’t have any regular shape and size. The dimension varies with nature. Scraps considered in this work are 0.5mm thickness. The concrete reinforced with steel scrap naturally which could be used in the construction of structures in zone III seismic areas.
