Conference Name :
This project work intends to investigate the possibility of producing low costs enhanced performance concrete by wood ash. By taking the enormous amount of sand in river beds, it affects the environment badly and demand for fine aggregate is increase day by day. So by partially replacing Prosopis juliflora ash with fine aggregate in construction field, it can serve both the purpose of meeting the demands of construction industry and at the same time providing a green and clean environment. This expectation of partial replacement of fine aggregate by using wood ash in concrete gives the general characteristics like density, strength, workability and durability. The conventional concrete mixture consists of cement, course aggregate, fine aggregate and water in the project wood ash is used with different percentage 0f 10%,20%,30%. The total number of 9 cubes of 150-150mm is casted using the grade of concrete M20. The mixture is prepared for concrete cubes and conduct the compressive strength on 7 days, 14 days and 28 days.
