Crushed Sand, Environmental impacts, Fine aggregate, Mortar.
The natural sand which excavated from river bed is used to produce conventional concrete. Depletion of natural sand cause the environmental problem and hence sand excavating is restricted by government which resulted in shortage and drastically increases in its cost. In order to fulfill the necessity of fine aggregates, an alternative material like crushed sand can be used in concrete. In this project, different types of plastering materials such as natural sand and artificial sand used and Study their effect using different parameters. Also we have to study the effect of ready mix plaster. Mortar mix is prepared with proportion of 1:2, 1:3 and 1:6 with water cement ratio of 0.5 and 0.55 respectively. All of the experiments are performed in normal room temperature. We have to also study the plastering materials based on different parameters. This paper puts forward the applications of manufactured sand as an attempt towards sustainable development. It will help to find viable solution to the declining availability of natural sand to make eco-balance.
