Experimental Study on Agro Waste as Fine Aggregate in Concrete

    T.Subramani, S.Priyanka


ABSTRACT The increased cost of building materials is a major factor of concern. We would all like to see our buildings strong and build at reasonable prices with the building materials. All building industries rely totally on cement, sand and concrete aggregates. Today, most researchers investigate the material, which can both reduce construction costs and increase strength.Due to the rapid urbanization and waste disposal problem in developed countries, high natural resource demand has given the construction market opportunity for Agro-waste use. Alternatives to cement, fine aggregates, coarse aggregates, and reinforcement materials in concrete are already in use with a large number of agricultural wastes.This paper examines some of the Agro-waste materials used to partially replace finest concrete aggregates. The use of coconut, ash rice husk and tobacco waste as a substitute of fine aggregates into concrete by various proportions (15 % and 30 %). This study provides an impact of these waste on concrete properties such as workability, compressive and split tensile resistance for M25 concrete grade. Keywords:Agro waste, Fine aggregate and concrete.
