Abstract:

The use of alternative sand like silica sand, artificial sand is a natural step in solving part of depletion of natural aggregates. The experimental investigation on replacement of different material for concrete making started before half a century. Concrete made from silica sand and artificial sand as fine aggregate was studied for compressive strength, Split tensile strength and Flexural strength. So in this project, Silica sand and artificial sand had been used as replacement of fine aggregate by different percentage for making concrete of M-30 grade, with w/c ratio 0.42. The percentage replacement will be 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% with natural fine aggregates. For making concrete OPC cement is used. Cubes, beams and cylinders will be casted and tested compressive strength, Split tensile strength, and flexural strength. Optimum replacement of silica sand and artificial sand can be used in concrete for high compressive strength, Split tensile strength, and flexural strength.
