Partial Replacement of Aggregate with Ceramic Tile in Concrete
Crushed tiles, Compressive strength, Flexural strength, Granite powder, Split Tensile strength.
Due to the day-to-day innovations and development in construction field, the use of natural aggregates is increased tremendously and at the same time, the production of solid wastes from the demolitions of constructions is also quite high. Because of these reasons the reuse of demolished constructional wastes like ceramic tile and granite powder came into the picture to reduce the solid waste and to reduce the scarcity of natural aggregates for making concrete. The ceramic tile waste is not only occurring from the demolition of structures but also from the manufacturing unit. Studies show that about 20-30% of material prepared in the tile manufacturing plants are transforming into waste. This waste material should have to be reused in order to deal with the limited resource of natural aggregate and to reduce the construction wastes. Crushed waste ceramic tiles, crushed waste ceramic tile powder and Granite powder are used as a replacement to the coarse aggregates and fine aggregate. The ceramic waste crushed tiles were partially replaced in place of coarse aggregates by 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50%. Granite powder and ceramic tile powder were replaced in place of fine aggregate by 10% along with the ceramic coarse tile. M25 grade of concrete was designed and tested. The mix design for different types of mixes were prepared by replacing the coarse aggregates and fine aggregate at different percentages of crushed tiles and granite powder. Experimental investigations like workability, Compressive strength test, split tensile strength test, Flexural strength test for different concrete mixes with different percentages of waste crushed and granite powder after 7-, 14- and 28-days curing period has done. It has been observed that the workability increases with increase in the percentage of replacement of granite powder and crushed tiles increases. The strength of concrete also increases with the ceramic coarse tile aggregate up to 30% percentage.
