Acacia Nilotica Ash, Crumb Rubber, Compressive Strength, Tensile Strength, Flexural Strength
Concrete is most widely used construction material due to its good compressive strength & Durability. Cement, Coarse aggregates, fine aggregates & water are the constituents of the concrete. Many researchers have found alternative for cement due to its cost & pollution during its manufacturing process. Here in this project, Acacia Nilotica Ash had been replaced for cement. It consists of Calcium, Magnesium & Potassium salts it acts as a binding material. Crumb rubber is a material produced by shredding and commutating used tires. Due to the depletion of natural sand, it is required to use other material than sand being used as the fine aggregate in concrete. Hence Acacia Nilotica Ash & Crumb Rubber is replaced with cement & sand respectively. M25 grade of concrete by maintaining water cement ratio of 0.40 were casted into different specimens by replacing 5% of crumb rubber & 0%, 5%, 10%, &15% of acacia nilotica ash. In this project Compressive strength, Split tensile strength, & Flexural behavior of concrete with varying quantity of acacia nilotica and crumb rubber are evaluated and compared with the conventional concrete specimen
