Paper Mill Ash, Design Mix, CTM


Today’s fast growing industrialization where production of materials are touching the remarkably heights, so it’s the need of an hour to utilize the waste which is produced in these factories. Paper producing industries generates a huge quantity of waste, to overcome these problem we need to tackle with alternate methods which will help to the reduce the impact of major environmental problems. This paper mill ash is named as Hypo Sludge Ash (HSA), for the production of paper the chemical are mixed and used for a numerous time for producing the paper of good quality but once its usefulness is achieved the raw material cannot be again utilize and also Ground Granulated Blast furnace slag which is the by-product of iron ore is used for comparison and its usefulness is suggested. In this project work these waste is used to replace the cement in various proportions and noticeable changes in reading are recorded. Accordingly the design mix is made for M40 grade concrete and testing is performed by means of compression testing machine (CTM) and flexural testing machine. It was found that optimum results are obtained at 10 % replacement of paper mill ash.
