Abstract
In this study, the effects of the use of Wheat straw ash, Plastic granules and Mill scale on concrete strength were investigated. Existing natural deposits are being exhausted at a tremendous rate. The arguments are mostly related to protecting river bed against erosion for having natural sand is a filter for groundwater. For this afford to use suitable recycle materials as substitute for concrete aggregate. Due to increase in industrialization and urbanization, disposing and recycling of waste mill scale, wheat straw ash and plastic granules are major issue. So it is very important to come with proper solution such as using these waste materials as a raw material in construction industry which would help us in conserving natural resources, proper utilization of waste material. Cost and environmental considerations play a big role in today's construction projects. The main binding material of concrete is cement that gives the construction strength and longevity. Wheat straw ash (WAS) is found to be an effective pozzolanic material. Mill Scale is a waste product in iron industry. Mill Scale helps in the improvement of concrete's mechanical properties as well as its durability. In general, the use plastic granules with Mill Scale in concrete has been proved to be enhancing the characteristics of concrete i.e. density. Hence, concrete with WSA, plastic granules and mill scale addition can be recommended for the production of economical and environmentally friend concrete.
