Abstract
Sugarcane bagasse is a fibrous by-product of the sugar refining process. This by-product causes a high level of environmental pollution, necessitating the use of urgent waste disposal methods. The present study focuses on the use of Sugarcane Bagasse Ash in a concrete production as a substitute material for fine aggregate. The use of fine aggregate in concrete is increasing day by day. Sugarcane Bagasse ash contains a high amorphous silica and aluminium content. In the present analysis, agricultural waste product Sugar Cane Bagasse Ash (SBCA) is used as an alternative binding material. The aim of this project is to investigate the effects of partially replacing fine aggregate with sugarcane bagasse ash in concrete that has been exposed to various curing environments. The bagasse ash used for the research work is collected from Mahatma Sugar Factory, Wardha and used in concrete as a fine aggregate replacement in the ratio of 0 %, 5%, 10%, 15% & 20% by a weight. The influence of a fine aggregate replacement by bagasse ash on durability of concrete to Acid attack and Sulphate attack is determined in this paper. The concrete specimens were cured for 28 days in a solution of 3% sulphuric acid and hydrochloric acid. In this paper, we primarily focus on evaluating variation in compressive strength and weight reduction in five different M30 Grade mixes.
