Abstract
Concrete is generally composed of sand, cement, aggregate and water. The demand of natural sand in the construction industry has increased a lot resulting in the reduction of sources and an increase in price. Thus an increased need to identify a suitable substitute, that is eco-friendly and inexpensive material being extensively used as an alternative to the sand in the production of concrete. In our project sand is replaced by both mixture of ceramic waste and quarry dust. Ceramic waste and quarry dust are waste material. These material are comes from various industries. The compressive strength of concrete can be compared with the ordinary concrete. Before that, various workability tests and strength tests were conducted. Sand is replaced with 25 percentage of ceramic waste and 25 percentage of quarry dust mixture that which compared with conventional concrete. No additional catalyst or plasticizers have been used. Based on the test results, our concrete with showed better results when compared to conventional concrete. The compressive strength has been tested for 7 days, 14 days and 28 days strength after casting the moulds.
