Cement Concrete; Bagasse Ash; Compressive Strength


Sugarcane bagasse is a waste-product of the sugar cleansing industry. The bagasse is fibrous in nature. A very large amount of bagasse ash is obtained from these industries which requires its disposal and environmental problems. The bagasse ash can be used as partial replacement of fly ash in fly ash bricks with significant alteration in properties of bricks. In present study, the effect of bagasse ash is investigated when used as replacement in fly ash bricks. The bricks prepared with different amount of bagasse ash and fly ash are tested for strength and other properties. It is observed that compressive strength is decreased along with density as bagasse ash is used to replace fly ash in bricks. However, the density is also found to decrease by about 80%.
