Concrete is one of the oldest manufactured construction material used constructions of various structures around the world. Due to its high demand the material used for concrete production depleting every year. Thus, around the world new construction materials are being investigated. In this study ceramic waste was used as replacement of fine aggregate and marble waste used as replacement of cement. The scope of the study includes the investigation on the compressive strength. The method of study to be carried out is through the appropriate test on aggregate, sand, cement, marble slurry and ceramic powder. The entire tests have been carried out and the results had been recorded and analysed in appropriate table.
Concrete is one of the oldest manufactured construction material used in construction of various structures around the world and the most widely used in all types of civil engineering works, including infrastructures, low and high rise building, defence installation, environment protection and local or domestic developments. It is a construction material obtained by mixing a binder (such as cement, sand, aggregate) and water in certain proportions. The use of sand in construction activities results in the excessive mining, causing depletion of natural resources resulting increase in scour depth and sometimes flood possibility. Ceramic waste is most commonly produced from ceramic industry
whereas Marble powder from processing plants during the sawing and polishing of marble blocks.
Ceramic waste is seen as non-hazardous solid waste and possesses Pozzolonic properties Therefore, after recycling can be reused in different building construction application Marble is a metamorphic rock produced from limestone by pressure and heat in the earth's crust due to geological process Marble Dust Powder is an industrial waste made from cutting of marble rock. The rapid growth of industrialization gave birth to numerous kinds of waste by products which are environmentally hazard and creates problems of storage.
Always, construction industry has been at forefront in consuming these waste products in large quantities. The utilization will also reduce the strain on supply of natural fine aggregate, which will also reduce the cost of concrete. Using artificial Aggregates for quality concrete is a natural step to mitigating this problem. The World Wide consumption of fine aggregate in concrete production is very high, and several developing countries have encountered difficulties in meeting the supply of natural fine aggregate in order to satisfy the increasing needs of infrastructural development in recent years. To overcome the stress and demand for river fine aggregate, researchers and practitioners in the construction industries have identified some alternative materials such as fly ash, slag, limestone powder and siliceous stone powder, ceramic dust etc.
A. Objectives of the Project
To provide some information about the use of ceramic and marble waste in concrete.
To reduce the consumption of natural resources.
To compare the ceramic-marble concrete with conventional concrete.
To achieve economy and environment saving.
To increase the compressive strength of concrete by using ceramic waste and marble slurry.
How the project will work ?
Thus project aims at providing information on OPC cement concrete where the Marble powder is partially replaced with cement to make it light in weight and providing and economical construction material. Firstly, the selection of the site is to be Done thereafter, collection of material. Then, the mix design for blocks will be Calculated. After that the materials should undergo tests as mentioned in planning. Afterwards the concrete blocks should be casted according to the satisfactory standards Of IS : 456 2000. After period of 28 days of casting and resting, the blocks should be Tested on
Compressive Testing Machine (CTM) to know the
Compressive Strength of Casted block
C. Mix Design for M35
Specific Gravity of Cement: - 3.14
Specific Gravity Coarse Aggregates: - 2.83
Specific Gravity Fine Aggregates: - 2.642.73
Specific Gravity of Water: - 1
V. FUTURE SCOPE
The use ceramic-marble concrete as a structural concrete. eg. Residential building.
It can also use as a non-structural concrete. Ex. Compound wall, garden paver block etc.
By the use ceramic tile aggregate in concrete the physical properties like durability permeability etc. Can be analysed to prepare a concrete with more advantage then conventional concrete.
Ceramic tile aggregate in high strength concrete can be studied further to check the possibility of its use in high rise buildings.
The basic objective of the study is to prepare a concrete much more stable and durable than the conventional by replacing fine aggregate and cement. Mix design for all the replacements of materials has done and a total of 54 cubes are prepared and tested in the aspect of strength calculation and also comparison has done.
As compared to conventional concrete, on addition of marble slurry and ceramic waste its characteristic strength is gradually increased up to 12% marble slurry and 12% ceramic powder. There after compressive strength was found to be decrease for 13% marble and 13% ceramic waste.
Utilization of ceramic waste and marble waste and its application for sustainable development of the construction is the most effective solution.
It is the best possible alternative solution of safe disposal of the ceramic waste and marble waste and thus stepping into a solving environmental pollution.
