Abstract

The consumption of cement in concrete industries has been increasing day by day to fulfil the pressing needs of infrastructure due to growing population, industrialization and urbanization. The production of cement poses environmental problems due to emission of gaseous pollutants. Huge amount of granite powder generation have been causing waste disposal problems. Cow dung is used as fuel for the domestic purpose, which generates solid waste as ash. In this study, an attempt was made to replace the cement using granite powder and cow dung ash.M25 grade concrete is considered. These sets were prepared using different proportions of cement, granite powder and cow dung ash. Then the cubes were estimated to cure for the period of 7 days, 21 days and 28 days. The mechanical properties of concrete were tested by means of various tests like compressive strength, Split tensile and Flexural Strength test. Workability tests were also considered for the study.
