Abstract

This report is part of a survey investigating the structural features of concrete using various combinations of lateritic sand and quarry rubble as a complete substitute for conventional river sand fine aggregate. Samples of concrete cube were made using varying contents of laterite and quarry dust as fine aggregate. The quantity of laterite was varied from 0% to 100% against quarry dust at intervals of 20%. The samples were cured for specified periods and tested in the laboratory for compressive strength. Workability tests were earlier carried out to find out the optimum water/cement ratios for three different mixtures. M40 mix was projected as per IS specification with water cement ratio 0.45.
