Abstract

This paper presents Fly Ash brick properties, manufacturing process material required for preparing the clay bricks and fly ash bricks as per Indian standard code provisions, inspection and quality control. The textures of the bricks with Fly Ash were very similar to that of clay bricks; the sample with the additive contains spherical Fly Ash particles. These particles of Fly Ash led to a reduction in the density of the bricks and a substantial improvement in their durability. Use of this additive could have practical implications as a means of recycling and for achieving cost savings in brick production. The absorption coefficient, shape and size, density, weight, porosity, thermal conductivity and compressive strength of Fly Ash bricks compare with normal clay bricks that delivered good results. From the present study, it can be concluded that Fly Ash bricks used as an alternative to clay bricks.
