Coarse Aggregate, Ceramic, Ceramic Wastes, Cost Effective, Eco-Friendly


Concrete is a mixture which is produced by blending adequate proportion of cement, water and aggregate. Every ingredient is used to significantly increase the performance of concrete. Apart from performance of concrete, the developers also accounts cost of concrete which is proportional to the cost of each ingredient. Considering the rising cost of these ingredients and scarcity of natural resources, the utilization of alternative materials in production of concrete, is opted. The present paper emphasizes on studying the characteristics of concrete blended by replacing coarse aggregate with ceramic waste. Ceramic waste is produced from industries during production of ceramic artefacts. The industries produce approx. 30% of waste material of production, which is usually not recycled and used in landfills. In construction sector the ceramic can be effectively used in place of coarse aggregate in production of cost effective and eco-friendly concrete.
