Properties of Brick by Using Granite Waste and Quarry Dust
Keywords:Bricks, granite powder, quarry dust, compressive strength, water absorption, hardness, efflorescence, soundness
The brick is a building material, which is used to build up the structures. The aim of this project is to determine the compressive strength and other characteristic of the bricks. The bricks with clay and granite sawing powder waste and quarry dust, which will give a better understanding on the properties of bricks like compressive strength, water absorption and size and shape of brick was good while comparing the other kind of bricks. The scope of this project is to determine and compare the strength of the bricks by using different percentage of granite sawing powder waste and quarry dust. The adding percentages are equal like 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20%. The investigation was carried out by various mix ratio using the laboratory test likes compression test, water absorption. For strength characteristics, the results showed that a gradually increase in compressive strength, water absorption values in bricks was good while comparing the characteristics compressive strength of bricks.
