Abstract

This project is an attempt to minimizing the extraction of raw materials with respect to the demand for building materials especially bricks. So this is an attempt to invent the composite brick by using the various raw materials like granite dust, ironite, M-sand with cement as binder. The composite bricks of size (190x90x90) mm are produced by applying pressure such that no need to burn in the kilns in turn environmental pollution can be avoided, this can be known as a green movement in making the building materials. After 28 days of curing the bricks will be tested for various characteristics like compressive strength and water absorption capacity, so this study will demonstrate the production of composite bricks and their comparison with the conventional clay bricks.
