Abstract

In construction industry concrete made has its own priority above all constructional materials in the ancient time lime was used as a binder material for construction, but as time elapses concrete took his place as a binder and its wide use makes it important. It has different properties which plays an important role among them compressive strength is the most essential one as more is the strength more will be its capacity to hold live load on it after it hardens. As we know concrete constitute of cement, sand and coarse aggregate and coarse aggregate have the maximum volume of the concrete, so on some aspect its quality may also affect the properties of concrete. Granite gravel and crushed quartzite were used as a coarse aggregate in concrete for M40 mix and design mix was as per IS: 10262-2009 and with both type of coarse aggregate super plasticizer was also used. Hence for specimens of granite gravel with and without admixture and specimen of crushed quartzite with and without admixture suggested crushed quartzite is also appropriate for making concrete by using it as a coarse aggregate without admixture.
