Papercrete Brick, Compression Test, Efflorescence Test


The construction industry consumes a large amount of non-renewable resources. Our project aimed to utilize the waste paper and fly ash to use as a construction material constitutes a step towards sustainable development. For this effort four different mix proportions are used to make bricks. The bricks are made by partial replacement of cement by paper pulp. For normal mix Portland cement, and quarry dust is used. In case of paper pulp brick, cement is replaced by paper pulp by 10%, 20%, 30% respectively with constant % of flyash to investigate some properties like strength, water absorption, fire resistance, hardness, soundness etc by conducting the different tests on prepared bricks. While using paper pulp to make bricks, it reduces approximately 50% weight of the brick. Therefore these bricks will reduce the dead weight of the structure to considerable amount. also use of flyash - environment friendly material So it changes our design and building cost as in economical point of view.
