Abstract
This paper reports the exploratory study on the suitability of the sea shells and fly ash as partial replacement for in concrete. This has necessitated research into alternative materials of construction and analyzing tensile and compressive strength characteristics of concrete produced using by sea shells as substitutes for conventional fine aggregate with partial replacement using M25 grade concrete. Sieve analysis is carried out from various fine aggregates (FA) and coarse aggregates (CA) samples and the sample which suits the requirement is selected. Fly ash will be used to replace cement by weight and by volume respectively. The Fine aggregate is partial replacement with 0%, 15%, 30%, 45%,60% and 75% by seashells. Specific gravity tests are will be carried out for fine aggregate.The water cement ratio is maintained for this mix design is 0.45. Compacting factor test will be carried out on fresh concrete while Compressive Strength test will be carried out on hardened 150mmX150mm concrete cubes after 7 and 28 days curing in water. The compacting factor of the volume batched concrete produced by volume replacement of sand by seashell is higher than that produced by weight replacement.
