Cement, Brick Powder
Dumping of brick dust and other waste brick particles, flakes etc., not only occupy land but also create environmental problems. The problems could be reduced to a large extent by using these waste materials in cement concrete. The main aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility of using waste brick powder in concrete as partial replacement for cement. Cement is replaced by waste brick powder in different proportions until 20% by weight. The reasons for using brick dust include economical gain and it also reduces the total amount of cement being used in concrete. Experimental results indicate that brick dust could be used for partial replacement of cement in concrete. Concrete cubes prepared with 10% cement replaced by brick powder shows compressive strength comparable to conventional concrete cubes prepared with Ordinary Portland cement. The presence of Brick powder shows that certain properties of concrete could be improved by using brick dust in combination with Ordinary Portland cement. The results of the investigation confirmed the potential use of this bricks powder material to produce pozzolanic concrete.
