ABSTRACT:
The high consumption of raw materials by the construction sector results in chronic shortage of building materials and the associated environmental damage. In the last decade, the construction companies have conducted various researches on the utilization of waste products in concrete in order to reduce the utilization of natural resources. Use of construction wastes in concrete-making, will lead to greener environment. In this study, an attempt has been made to find the suitability of the ceramic wastes as a possible substitute for conventional natural fine aggregate in concrete. Experiments were carried out to determine the compressive and split tensile strength of concrete by partially replacing ceramic wastes in place of river sand and to compare them with that of conventional concrete made with natural fine aggregate. The test results indicated that the workability of ceramic waste fine aggregate concrete is high and equivalent to that for conventional concrete. The compressive strength of ceracrete is slightly higher and the split tensile strength of ceracrete is almost equivalent to that of controlled concrete.
