Abstract:

Leaving the waste materials to the environment directly can cause environmental problem. Hence the reuse of waste material has been emphasized. Waste can be used to produce new products or can be used as admixtures so that natural resources are used more efficiently and the environment is protected from waste deposits. Marble stone industry generates both solid wastes and stone slurry. This paper focus on the utilization of waste of Marble dust powder in concrete and enhancement of strength of concrete more economically. The Marble dust powder was added in M20 grade of concrete at (0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% & 30%) with partial replacement by weight of cement. Water/Cement ratio (0.50) was kept constant, in all the concrete mixes. The concrete samples (cube & cylinder) were tested for compressive strength and split tensile strength after 7 & 28 days of proper curing. The results of the laboratory work showed that replacement of cement with Marble dust powder increases up to 10% for both compressive strength and split tensile strength of concrete.
