Abstract

Experimental investigations carried out to study the cow dung ash on the strength of mortar. Cement was partially replaced with six percentages (5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% and 30%) of cow dung ash by weight. Test performed on the mortar mix are compressive strength, workability, initial and final setting time. The compressive strengths of the mortar specimens were determined at 7, 14, 21 and 28 days respectively. The tests were performed on the moulds of size 70.6mmX70.6mmX70.6mm. The test results revealed that addition of CDA to cement paste prolonged the setting time. The compressive strength of the mortar is reduced with the increase in CDA. It has been observed in mortar, 10% replacement of cement by CDA may be used as a partial replacement to cement in mortar. Thus 10% replacement of cement by CDA gives satisfactory result.
