Abstract

This Project Presents results of an experimental program to determine “COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF ICONCRETE STRENGTH AGAINST RECYCLABLE BALLAST AND GRANITE SCRAP AS PARTIAL REPLACEMENT OF COARSE AGGREGATE”. The main objective of this project is to generate a study on concrete which incorporate Railway Ballast stones with 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and White granite stones with 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% by replacing the usage of coarse aggregate and concrete waste partially due to their abundance. Analysis of incorporated concrete will be done in fresh state as well in hardened state to evaluate different properties of concrete i.e. slump, compaction factor test, unit weight, and compressive strength are evaluated. From all the results and experimental approach, it will get concluded that Concrete formed with ballast stones and waste granite stones are shows beneficial performance as compared with the concrete made up of natural aggregate obtained from local resources. It reduces the cost of concrete by reducing the aggregate cost and produces economical infrastructure system. The main observation will be that the use of waste materials results in the formation of light-weight concrete. Uses of such waste materials will not only cut down the cost of construction, but will also contribute in safe disposal of waste materials.
