Use and Cost Comparison of Pond Ash with Fly Ash for Bricks Casting
International journal of innovations in engineering and science
The project aims to find out the possibility of using pond ash and stone crusher dust in fly ash manufacturing bricks. A part of cement is replaced by pond ash and stone crusher dust is used as an additive in different composition as per the conventional standard code of practice at brick manufacturing plant. The properties are analyzed and compared with those of the conventional bricks. This project deals with the engineering properties such as chemical composition, compressive strength, water
... ive strength, water absorption and characteristics of pond ash, its application as a sustainable material in construction industry, to bring in environmental and economic benefits. And as the pond ash is waste material and it is not used in any type of construction material, due to this there is large amount of waste generation and it is difficult to store such amount of waste. therefore to overcome this problem manufacturing of pond ash bricks can play very crucial role. The pond ash brick and fly ash brick are light in weight, with less absorption, high performance, high tensile strength and more durability. The bricks produced were about 28% lighter than clay brick. In this project work an attempt is made to find out the possibility of using pond ash instead of burnt clay brick and conventional cement bricks with utilization of industrial waste by replacing fly ash with it.
