Cement, Sand, Aggregate, Kota Stone (Green) Powder, Compressive Strength


At present time concrete having more used in civil construction such as building construction, Bridge construction & Dam construction etc. For these purpose huge quantity of concrete consume in civil construction work. Concrete is made up of in gradients such as Cement, Sand, Aggregate, Water etc. Kota stone’s powder or dust is easily available in stone industries because kota stones having used in various types of civil construction in huge quantity like-exteriors, pathway, corridors, driveways, balconies etc. During the process of cutting stone 25% dust formed. The generated stone dust from stone cutting factory prohibited from being discharge to public sanitory system and as well as agricultural land because of land fertility decreases through stone dust. Engineering application can solve the problem of disposing stone waste with the help of using replacement of cement in concrete. The in gradients of concrete, cement is more expensive material as compare to others in gradients of concrte In these study cement is partially replaced with different percentages as 0%,10%,20% & 30% of kota stone (green) powder .In this study tested compressive strength, flexural strength , split tensile strength and workability of concrete. For these purpose total 88 specimens of concrete made like cubes. The use of kota stone (green) powder as replacement of cement offer cost reduction, increase strength, supiers products.
