Abstract:

Concrete is the most undisputable and indispensable material being used in infrastructure development throughout the world. Umpteen varieties of concretes (FAC, HVFAC, FRC, HPC, HSC, and others) were researched in several laboratories and brought to the field to suit the specific needs. Marble, granite and Siramic tiles industry has grown significantly in the last decades with the privatization trend in the early 1990s, and the flourishing construction industry. Accordingly, the amount of mining and processing waste has increased. Stone waste is generally a highly polluting waste due to both its highly alkaline nature, and its manufacturing and processing techniques, which impose a health threat to the surroundings. The objective of this paper is to ceramic tiles waste of different sizes in the manufacturing of concrete bricks, with partial replacement of conventional coarse and cement with silica fume and ceramic tiles waste content up to 20%.The produced bricks are tested for physical and mechanical properties according to the requirements of the American Standards for Testing Materials (ASTM) and the IDIAN Code. The test results revealed that the recycled products have physical and mechanical properties that qualify them for use in the building sector.
