Abstract
Agricultural substances are those substancesthat are produce on earth with the change of seasons. These substances are widely available on earth can be a good source of energy can be converted into useful products. In India it is observed that mostly 60 tons of wastes have been generated from agricultural wastes which are leading to disposal problem. In this concrete using agro waste with some mineral admixture named GGBS (Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag). GGBS is a cementitious material whose main use is in concrete and is by product from the blast furnace used to make Iron. A blast furnace operates at a temperature about 1500˚C and is fed with a carefully controlled mixture of iron ore, coke and limestone. In addition to agricultural wastes Steel Fibre is also used partially for fine aggregate. Compacting factor test was carried out on fresh concrete while Compressive Strength test was carried out on hardened 150mm concrete cubes after 7, 14 and 28 days curing in water. The research also revealed that there is the possibility of replacing fine aggregate with rice husk ash and coconut shell and steel fibre with addition of GGBS in the production of structural concrete.
