A Study On Strength Characteristics Of Building Blocks Using Industrial Wastes

Download Paper


since there were a large development in construction and material industry the problems regarding the disposal of their harmful by-products has been increasing day by day. Also demand has been placed on building materials industry especially in the last decade due to shortage of building materials and so, the civil engineers have been challenged to convert waste to useful building and construction material. Recycling of such waste as raw material alternatives may contribute in the exhaustion of the natural resources and reduction in waste disposal costs. In this the study reviews the utilization of those wastes in block production. The effects had been carried out in production of solid blocks of size 400×200×200 mm by 10 kg replacement of separate industrial waste of irregular shape in each block. A chips concrete has been made with M 15 (1:2:4) mix and the industrial waste is placed and packed. Then the strength of each individual blocks with varying different industrial waste such has granite, steel slag waste, demolished concrete wastes and sand mold waste from steel industry has been tested and an comparison was been regarding their compressive strength and water absorption properties.

Key Words
