An Experimental Investigation on Partial Replacement of Waste Foundary Sand in Plane Concrete

Authors(4) :-G V Harsha Vardhan, M Mallikarjuna, N Venkata Hussain Reddy, K Gayathri

The increased quest for sustainable and eco friendly materials in the construction industry has led to research on partial replacement of selected waste material in concrete. The attempt is made on replacing waste Foundry sand as a partial replacement for fine aggregate in concrete. In this project work, 20%,40%,60%,80%,100% of fine aggregate is replaced by the Foundry sand in M20, M40, M60 mix concrete . the compressive strength and split tensile strength of concrete mix at 28thday of curing period is determined. Test results indicate an increase in compressive strength of plain concrete by replacing of WFS instead of fine aggregate. The maximum compressive strength, split tensile strength and Flexural strength was obtained at 40% of replacement. after that it losses strength in compressive strength, split tensile strength and Flexural strength.
