Abstract

The need for natural aggregates has intensified in the field of building and construction lately which, by default, is bringing about a tremendous diminution of resources, soaring of prices and simultaneously, the developing nations are perturbed about the management of the wood waste or sawdust .This paper propounds the salient features of an experimental study based on Timbercrete blocks produced by partial replacement of coarse and fine aggregates with sawdust. Various features like compressive strength, water absorption and density were studied at various replacement percentages. To assess the performance of timbercrete blocks at multiple replacement percentages and experimental study was conducted. Hence, blocks of dimensions 150mm×150mm×150mm were tested, for the aforementioned characteristics, at various replacement percentages of both coarse and fine agglomerates. As a maneuver, a concrete assortment of 1:2:4 was used where sawdust was utilized to replace 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% of the aggregates gradually. “Gunny bag curing” was administered as a method of choice for curing. After the experiment was carried out, the compressive strength for 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% blocks were recorded as 9.87N/mm2, 8.48N/mm2, 5.2N/mm2, 3.78N/mm2 and 2.66N/ mm2 respectively after 28 days.

Key Words
