Replacement of Natural Sand by Artificial Sand & Its Effect on Cost and Compressive Strength of Concrete

Authors(5) :-Hemant Thete, Rohan Adole, Omkar Bankar, Bhavika Tayade, Prof. S. S. Bodke

India is a developing country taking an initiative on developing infrastructure to meet the requirements of globalization in the construction of structures. Concrete is the only material to fulfill this demand & volume of concrete consumed by the construction industry is very large. Concrete is comprised of sand, aggregate, cement, water. The fine aggregates or sand used is usually obtained from natural resources specially river beds or river banks. The project presents review of research work on effects of replacement of natural sand with artificial sand on cost and compressive strength of concrete. A brief summary of the most significant investigations on the behavior of concrete by replacing natural sand with artificial sand due to which environmental and social problems arise due to acute shortage of natural sand will be overcome.
