Abstract

This study aims at utilization of industrial by product foundry sand for value added application. In addition the waste can improve the properties of construction material. Concrete is a construction material composed of cement, aggregate (fine & coarse aggregate), water and admixtures. Today many researches are on going into the use of fine aggregate replacement, using many waste materials like foundry sand. Foundry sand is high quality silica sand with uniform physical characteristics. Foundry sand consists primarily of silica sand, coated with a thin film of burnt carbon, residual binder (betonies, sea coal, and resins) and dust. Foundry Sand can be used as a partial replacement of fine aggregates as supplementary addition to achieve different properties of concrete. The fine aggregate will be replaced by used foundry sand accordingly in the range of 0%, 20%, 40%, 60% & 100% by weight for M-60 grade concrete. The compressive strength, split tension strength, consistency and flexural strength will be conduct for above replacement. Test results indicated a marginal increase in the strength properties of plain concrete by the inclusion of UFS as partial replacement of fine aggregate (sand) and that can be effectively used in making good quality and economic concrete and construction materials.
