Granite Powder, Crushed Tiles, Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Test


Due to the day by day innovations and development in construction field, the use of natural aggregates is very high and at the same time production of solid wastes from the demolitions of constructions is also very high. Because of these reasons the reuse of demolished constructional wastes and granite powder came into the picture to reduce the solid waste and to reduce the scarcity of natural aggregates. Crushed waste tiles and Granite powder are used as a replacement to the coarse aggregates and fine aggregate. The combustion of waste crushed tiles were replaced in place of coarse aggregates by 10%, 20%, 30% and Granite powder were replaced in place of fine aggregate by 10%, 20%, 30% without changing the mix design. M30 grade of concrete was designed to prepare the conventional mix. Without changing the mix design different types of mixes were prepared by replacing the coarse aggregates and fine aggregate at different percentages of crushed tiles and granite powder. Experimental investigation like slump test and Compressive strength test, Ultrasonic pulse velocity test for different concrete mixes with different percentages of waste crushed and granite powder after 7,28 and 90 days in different curing conditions like normal water curing and accelerated curing tank.
