The research work is determination of the effect of the use of ‘Banana Leaves Ash’ as a replacement of cement to assess the pozzolanic nature of banana leaves ash when mixed in concrete. Concrete is one of the mostly used building construction materials in the construction industry. This material is widely used because it has many advantages such as durability, energy saving, low maintenance cost, economy, fire resistance, excellent heat quality and variety of activities. The world is now focusing on alternative sources of environmentally friendly, biodegradable natural ingredients. Banana wood Agricultural waste that can replace cement as a building material. Banana leaf ash contains a pozzolana reaction that often occurs in Portland. After harvesting the fruit, need to learn how to use banana leaves, rather than cut it down enough to eat. The goal of this project was to determine the durability when using banana ash to make concrete and make a good binder. The source of BLA are obtained from banana plant and they are readily available, environmental friendly and cheap. Banana leaf ash has great potential to improve the concrete performance. Banana leaf material Created by placing dried banana leaves and collecting residues. BLA is used in cement and replaces about 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% respectively. Strength and mechanical properties (such as compressive strength, tensile strength, and flexural strength) are determined by castings, columns, and beams, respectively. Compared to other cements, the mechanical properties of banana concrete are increased by 10%. Compare the results with the control mix.
