Paver Block, Marble Stone, Concrete, Aggregates.
With recent infrastructural development in urban India, trend of using paved surface around the building or on road sides is increasing. Traditional Concrete paving bocks are the most suitable, economical and locally available material for such paving surface. They are widely used on footpaths, garden pathways, courtyard paving, bust stand sheds, parking areas and in industry for working area. At the same time, amount of construction waste generated is also increasing with increased infrastructural development. Marble stone industry waste is one of the construction wastes which is left unused by industries or only used for filling low lying areas etc. In this study attempt has been made to use marble stone industry waste as replacement for course aggregate used for manufacturing of traditional concrete paving blocks. Varying percentage of marble stone waste aggregates is considered and paving blocks are tested for water absorption, compressive strength and splitting tensile strength. The results shown that maximum 70 % of replacement of traditional aggregate with marble stone waste aggregate is possible for optimum results. In this paper material used for the study, methodology adopted, results of various tests and summery results are given. Using waste material is reducing the cost of manufacturing and also solving the problem of disposal of construction waste and thus helping in protecting environment
