Improved Concrete Properties Using Quarry Dust as Replacement for Natural Sand Anzar Hamid Mir Student, Bachelor of Civil Engineering, IUST Awantipora, J&K, INDIA Abstract:- Concrete plays a major role in the construction industry. Natural sand is a prime material used for the preparation of concrete and also plays an important role in Mix Design.
contained marble dust as cement and sand replacement (cement addition). Water to powder ratio (w/p) or water to cement ratio (w/c) were 0.50 and 0.40 in case of cement replacement and in case of sand replacement respectively. Physical, mechanical and chemical properties of cement and concrete modified with marble dust were investigated.
replacement of cement in concrete for studying the strength property of concrete. The aim of the experiment is to find the maximum content of quarry dust partial replacement of cement in concrete. The percentages of quarry dust partial replacement of cement in concrete are 0, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 35%, and 40%.
Effect of Granite Powder on Strength Properties of Concrete Dr.T. Felix Kala ... siliceous stone powder, rock dust and quarry waste were used in concrete mixture as a partial replacement of natural sand . Hence the ... of granite powder as sand replacement together with admixtures as a partial replacement …
The use of granite stone dust in concrete as partial replacement of fine aggregate will be an alternative material instead of conventional fine aggregate. This will result in conservation of natural resources (fine aggregate) up to some extent, besides helping in environment protection and disposal of granite stone dust in abundance.
Can we make concrete using quarry dust as a replacement for sand? ... Some materials may be quite unsuitable for use in concrete. Granite dust might be fine (no pun intended) but marble dust, probably not. ... study,it is concluded that the quarry dust can be used as a replacement for fine aggregate.it is found that the 40% of replacement of ...
natural sand replacement in concrete. Concrete results The quarry dust mixes for all of the sands required a higher w/c ratio to achieve an S2 slump than their manufactured sand counterparts. This provides clear evidence of the improved particle shape and grading of the manufactured sand as a result of the V7 process.
2.4 Granite Saw Dust . Felixkala T and Partheeban P (2010) examined the possibility of using granite saw dust as replacement of sandalong with partial replacement of cement with fly ash, silica fume and blast furnace slag. They reported that granite saw dust of marginal quantity as partial replacement to sand
marble, granite and lime stone waste as a replacement of cement or sand in concrete mix in order to investigate their effects on the physical and mechanical properties of concrete. Most of these researchers used marble waste as a replacement of sand in mortar or concrete mix. All the experimental data showed that the addition of these wastes
granite dust. Therefore, granite dust of Maddhapara mine may be an alternative to natural sand for construction works. For the case of economic utilization of granite dust, it is essential to understand the strength characteristics of concrete cubes or cylinders that consist of granite dust and Portland cement,
Using Sand Between Patio Pavers. Sand between pavers will compact to a degree, yet still remain porous enough for good drainage. Typically concrete sand is used as a base layer and leveling medium for patios and walkways made of concrete paving stones. Once applied between the pavers, the excess is easy to sweep away.
