Partial Replacement of Cement by Fly Ash & Aggregate by Glass Pieses

K Umamaheswari, A Roopa, E Ayyappa Reddy .


Concrete is the most important engineering material and the addition of some other materials may change the properties of concrete. Mineral additions which are also known as mineral admixtures have been used with cements for many years. In the present study, an attempt has been made to investigate the strength parameters of concrete made with partial replacement of cement with 10%, 20% and 30% of Class F fly ash and fine aggregate was replaced with 10%, 20% and 30% of crushed cullet glass aggregate. The main parameter investigated in this study is M30 grade concrete with partial replacement of cement by 10%, 20% and 30% of Class F fly ash and fine aggregate was replaced with 10%, 20% and 30% of crushed cullet glass aggregate. On experimental investigation, it was found from the compression test results Mix no.15 having 30% fly ash 20% glass aggregate replacement shows the highest compressive strength and Mix no.15 and Mix no.3 having 20% glass aggregate replacement gives the highest tensile strength.
