Study on Strength & Durability of Concrete by Partial Replacement of Fine & Coarse Aggregates using Marble, Granite & Spent Fire Brick Waste

Authors(3) :-V. Sai Krupa, M. K. M. V. Ratnam, V. V. S. Sarma

Concrete is the most undisputable and indispensable material being used in infrastructure development throughout the world. The objective of this paper is to utilize marble, granite and Spent Fire Brick waste of different sizes in the manufacturing of concrete bricks, with partial replacement of conventional coarse and fine aggregates with Marble, Granite and Spent Fire Brick waste content up to 20%.The produced bricks are tested for physical and mechanical properties according to the requirements of the American Standards for Testing Materials (ASTM) and the INDIAN Code. The test results revealed that the recycled products have physical and mechanical properties that qualify them for use in the building sector.
