Strength Properties of Concrete with Aggregates from Alternate Sources

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
Aggregates used in concrete are fast depleting natural resource and the quarrying of which is causing environmental issues. Hence, the use of aggregate from alternate sources such as from waste discarded glass, from foundry sand discarded after metal casting process and sea shells is investigated. Compressive strength of concrete with glass powder, foundry sand and sea shell is studied individually. Concrete is cast with glass powder and foundry sand as 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% replacement of fine

It is observed that compressive strength of concrete decreases with glass powder, foundry sand, and sea shell. Fine aggregate replaced by 10% glass powder, 10%, foundry sand and coarse aggregate replaced by 10% sea shell have the least decrease in strength when compared to control concrete mix.
