Abstract:

Concrete is the generally used construction material which requires large quantities of natural resources of available cement, coarse aggregate, fine aggregate. As the wide usage of concrete may leads to increase in cost of resources an alternate material can be used as limited substitution of fine aggregates, coarse aggregates, cement or as admixtures in concrete. In this project experimental investigations are conducted as to minimize the budget for concrete and environmental degradation. In my work, experiments have been conducted by replacing cement with ceramic waste powder in varying percentages and using sisal fiber as an admixture. Recycling of ceramic waste by incorporating them into building materials is a practical solution for problems too. In this project, cement replacement is done by ceramic waste up to 40% along with adding up of sisal fiber. The cement replacement is done at percentages of 10%, 20%, 30 % and 40% by ceramic waste powder and addition of sisal fiber 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and 2% respectively. The design Mix used for the project is M30 grade with W/C Ratio being 0.45.The Conventional concrete made by replacing cement with ceramic waste powder and adding sisal fiber as admixture concrete specimens were casted and loaded for values of compressive strength ,flexural strength and split tensile strength for 7, 28, 56 and 90 days.
