A Study on Behaviour of Concrete Using Ceramic Waste
The objective of this study is to analyze the strength of concrete along with ceramic waste as coarse aggregate. Moreover disposal of solid waste is the major problem in the recent scenario. About 15% to 30% of ceramic production from industries quit as waste, which is not yet undergoing in the recycle method. In this work an trial has been done for finding the suitability of the ceramic industrial wastes as a feasible replacement for conventional crushed stone coarse aggregate. Trial mixes are performed to achieve a concrete of M20.The project work deals with the resolution of strength of concrete using various percentage of ceramic waste material i.e., broken ceramic waste by partially replacing coarse aggregate with 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% of ceramic waste. Various tests are conducted for materials such as, specific gravity test, water absorption test, crushing test, impact test, sieve analysis, consistency test before casting cubes, cylinders and beams. The comparative behaviour of concrete is studied by conducting laboratory tests on concrete cubes, cylinders and plain beams for conventional concrete and concrete casted with ceramic waste as coarse aggregate.
