The use of waste material as aggregates in civil engineering applications is beneficial and is becoming increasingly desirable because it reduces the environmental impact and economic cost of quarrying operations, processing, and transportation Thus, this study focused on establishing the effect of crushed tile and oil palm fibre additive on the compressive and flexural strength of concrete
The results of mix design indicate that crushed sand can also make as good a concrete as that made of natural he compressive strength obtained is same as of normal mixIn fact use of crushed sand will become inevitable in near future because of dwindling sources of natural sand
compressive strength were 575%, 681%, 837%,and 873% respectively The results of the study indicate that both the density and compressive strength of concrete decreased as the percentage replacement increased but replacement of sand by sawdust produced a higher percentage reduction in compressive strength than in density
strength concrete made with crushed brick as coarse aggregate and found that higher strength concrete (fcu = 310 to 455 N/mm2) with brick aggregate is achievable whose strength is much higher than the parent uncrushed brick implying that the compressive strength of brick aggregate concrete can be increased by decreasing its water-cement ratio
compressive strength of up to 308 N/mm2 It can be concluded that by reducing the water-cement ratio from 060 to 040 the compressive strength of crushed over burnt bricks – sand concrete and gravel – sand concrete increase by more than 30% Use of broken over burnt bricks as coarse aggregate for structural concrete is recommended when .

Further information can be found in our Compressive Strength of Concrete post Flexural strength is however much more dependant on the type and shape of the aggregates used Angular crushed aggregates achieve much greater flexural strength than rounded marine aggregat Further information on this is included in our Flexural Strength of .
Concrete is the most undisputable and indispensable material being used in infrastructure development throughout the world The present investigation shows the performance of brick aggregates in concrete with a view of achieving the target
To obtain the test results the workability is increased, compressive strength is increased up to 20% replacement level and at 30%, 40% replacement level it goes to decreasing, and Split tensile strength is slightly decreasing as compared to normal concrete Keywords: Concrete, Aggregates, Crushed Glass, Compressive Strength, Split Tensile Strength
The compressive strength is quantified for varying percentage and grades of concrete by replacement of sand with quarry dust 1 Introduction Quarry dust is a byproduct of the crushing process which is a concentrated material to use as aggregates for concreting purpose, especially as fine aggregat
The development of compressive strength of recycled aggregate concrete at the age of 1,3,7,14,28, 56, and 90 days; the development of tensile & flexural strength at the age of 1,3,7,14 and static modulus of elasticity at the age of 28 days are investigated
The corresponding result for gravel concrete 094, 092; The compressive strength at 28 days of concrete made with granite on bare ground is 2649 N/mm 2 , that of concrete mixed on Concrete .
The compressive aggregate strength is an important factor in the selection of aggregate When determining the strength of normal concrete, most concrete aggregates are several times stronger than the other components in concrete and therefore not a factor in the strength of normal strength concrete
The main purposes of using coarse aggregate in concrete is for its durability and strength Stronger the coarse aggregate greater will be the crushing strength of concrete Generally used coarse aggregate in making concrete is “Crushed Stone” C
Effects of using recycled concrete of different qualities as coarse aggregate upon the strength and deformation of concrete are reported Tests on the aggregates showed that the recycled concrete aggregates have lower specific gravity and higher absorption capacity than the original crushed granite aggregate
Generally, the CCA graph shows the most substantive results: the compressive strength increased considerably with ceramic coarse aggregates over the control or normal concrete, the more the percentage of the gravel-size materials are replaced by the ceramics
The Suitability Of Limestone Aggregates For Use In Structural Concrete The following is an excerpt of a presentation made by Mr Gordon Hutchinson at a seminar hosted by John's Hall Aggregates Limited entitled "The future of Construction Aggregates" held on June 13, 2012 at the Lecture Theatre, Montego-Bay Community College
From the experimental work Experimental Study of Compressive Strength of Recycled Aggregate Concrete, the following conclusion can be made: Recycling and reuse of building wastes have been found to be an appropriate solution to the problems of dumping hundred of thousands tons of debris accompanied with shortage of natural aggregat
Feb 03, 2012· From a compressive strength standpoint, there is little discernible difference Yes, crushed stone provides a bit better aggregate-paste bond, but not so much as to greatly affect the compressive strength The tensile strength is affected moreso by the aggregate shape Durability, cracking and other general parameters are not significantly .
Mechanical Properties Of Concrete Using Steel Slag Aggregate ijeijournal Page | 9 improvement in compressive strength, split tensile and flexure strength over control mixes by 4 to 8 % The replacement of 100 % slag aggregate (coarse) increased concrete density by about 5 to 7 %

Recent successful studies on the use of FCW as aggregates in concrete have been reported [11, 12] The results of these studies show that the compressive strength and the slump decrease with increasing the FCW aggregates percentage However, they are mainly devoted to experiences with crushed concrete as coarse aggregat
Compressive strength or compression strength is the capacity of a material or structure to withstand loads tending to reduce size, as opposed to tensile strength, which withstands loads tending to elongateIn other words, compressive strength resists compression (being pushed together), whereas tensile strength resists tension (being pulled apart) In the study of strength of materials .
