An Experimental Study on Strength of Concrete by Using Bagasse Ash as Partial Replacement of Cement
Keywords:baggase ash, compressive strength, workability
Bagasse ash, one of the waste, is used in this study. The reason to choose the Bagasse ash to develop a novel method to transfer it to valuable product and to solve the problem of dumping the tons of bagasse waste. The importance of this alternatively stone replacement to reduce bagasse waste that is hard to lapse and in addition to reducing the pollution of nature, it also saves cost and apply the concept of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Concrete is most widely used construction material in the world. To solve environmental issue like deposition of waste product, recycling or reuse of waste product, I am using Bagasse ash to make eco-friendly concrete. Due to growing environmental awareness, the world is increasingly turning to researching properties of waste and finding solution on using its valuable components parts so that those might be used as secondary raw material in other branches. Green building is an increasingly important global concern and a critical way to conserve natural resources and reduce the amount of materials going to our landfills. Large quantities of waste are generated from sugar factories. Today the construction industry is in need of finding effective materials for increasing the strength of concrete structures with low cost, and with less environmental damage. This research is aimed at addressing such issues by investigating the possibility of using bagasse ash to partially substitute for cement in concrete production. The compressive strength properties at different percentages replacement of cement with bagasse ash were investigated in laboratory. By replacing cement with 0%, 4%, 8% and 12% of the bagasse ash in concrete is studied. To ensure the success of this study, the materials to be used are as coarse aggregate, cement, sand, water and bagasse ash. In addition, there are two trial mixes to be made i.e., 1) Ordinary Concrete, 2) Concrete with addition of bagasse ash for M-30 grade of concrete. These samples are compared with Ordinary Concrete with Crush Sand.
