Coarse-aggregates, Concrete, Crushed over burnt bricks, Suitability.
Concrete is a versatile engineering material consisting of cementing substance, aggregates, water and often controlled amount of entrained air. It is initially a plastic, workable mixture which can be molded into a wide variety of shapes when wet. The strength is developed from the hydration due to the reaction between cement and water. The products, mainly calcium silicate, calcium aluminates and calcium hydroxide are relatively insoluble which bind the aggregate in a hardened matrix. The primary goal of the research is to investigate and evaluate the feasibility of employing crushed over burned brick aggregate as an alternative to costly traditional stone aggregate in concrete in order to minimize production costs, construction costs, and dead weight of a building structure. The research was conducted to study the suitability of crushed over burnt bricks as alternative coarse aggregates for concrete production. Tests were carried out to determine the physical properties of the crushed over burnt bricks aggregates. Values of 0%, 25% 50%, 75% and 100% were obtained for aggregate crushing value, aggregate impact value and aggregate water absorption respectively.
