Copper Slag, Durability, Sand Replacement, Acid Attack Test and Water Absorption Test


Among various industrial waste copper slag is one of the industrial waste which is polluting the environmental in different ways. The current work is carried out to compare the mechanical properties of copper slag concrete with conventional concrete at various replacement levels. Concrete mixes were evaluated for acid attack test and water absorption test. Concrete cube 15cmX15cmX15cm was tested for acid attack test and water absorption test. Copper slag as a replacement of sand that concrete exhibits enhanced mechanical properties with reference to conventional concrete.
