Abstract:

To increase emphasis on live cycle cost analysis of building project requires new attention to be focused on service life and durability of concrete structures. Durability is the ability to resist weathering action, chemical attack of any other process of deterioration of concrete. Concrete is the great versatility and relative economy infilling wide range needs has made it competitive building materials. This involves massive quarrying of raw materials (lime stone, clay)as it takes 1.7tones produced in one ton of clinker ,as well as emission of greenhouse gasses and other gasses (NOx,SO2,CO2)in to the atmosphere it around 850 kg’s of CO2emmited per one ton of clinker produced. River sand is most commonly used as fine aggregate in the production of concrete posses the problem of acute shortage in many areas ,whose continuous use has started posing serious problem with respect to its availability ,cost and environmental impact. This project report results of an experimental study the mechanical properties of (OPC) cement by brick powder and sand by quarry dust in the range of 0%, 10%, 15%, and 20% by weight of cement .concrete mixtures were produced ,tested and compared in terms of compressive strength, split tensile strength to the conventional concrete .These tests were carried out to evaluate the properties for 7,28,56and 90 days curing .the moulds were prepared are as follows 150mmX150mmX150mm cubes for each concrete mix. The aim of investigation is to study the behaviour of M25grade of concrete while replacing of brick powder and quarry dust by cement and sand with different proportions in concrete. These tests carry out to evaluate the mechanical properties of test results of 7days, 28days, 56days&90 days for compressive strength in normal water curing and in H2SO4 solutions of 1%&2&.Also durability aspect for brick powder and quarry dust in cement concrete for sulphate attack, percentage of weight reduction was tested.
