Abstract :

Concrete is a versatile engineering composite material made with cement, aggregates and admixtures in some cases. Due to the day by day innovations and developments in construction field, the global consumption of natural aggregates is very high and at the same time production of solid wastes from the demolitions and manufacturing units are also very high.. Because of this reasons the reuse of demolished construction wastes and solid waste from manufacturing came into the picture to reduce the solid wastes from demolition and manufacturing units and as well as to decrease the scarcity of natural basic aggregate. To overcome the issues many research were done to use many industrial waste as alternative or substantial material for concreting. In this project control concrete is casted for M25 grade and the partial replacement of concrete materials were decided to reuse industrial waste such as blast furnace slag and ceramics tiles as coarse aggregate replacement in range of 20%, 30%, 40% by weight of 20mm sieve size coarse aggregate. Concrete mixtures were produced, tested and compared in terms of compressive strength to the conventional concrete. These tests were carried out to evaluate the mechanical properties for 7, and 28 days. This project work is concerned with the experimental investigation on strength and mechanical properties of concrete and optimum percentage of the partial replacement by replacing 20%, 30%, 40% of ceramic waste and blast furnace slag
