ordinary Portland cement (53 Grade), dolomite powder


Concrete is a one of most versatile construction materials used since hundreds of years. Concrete production needs natural resources, which is diminishing the production of natural resources and energy day by day. This cement manufacturing companies are one of the primary producers of carbon dioxide, a potent greenhouse gas and responsible for global warming. The cost of concrete materials in building and civil engineering project has been a concern to the society. This requirement is drawn the attention of investigators to explore new replacements of ingredients of concrete. Several experimental studies have been carried out to find effective replacement for these raw materials of concrete to reduce cost, effect to the atmosphere. By considering all these aspects and need of present Dolomite powder can be beneficially used as a partial replacement of cement in concrete. The primary objective of this paper is to quantify the 7th, 14th & 28th Days desirable properties of concrete at various replacement levels with the help of literature review found and studied. This study includes previous investigation done on the mechanical and chemical properties of concrete produced using partial replacement of cement by dolomite powder So as to produce Eco-friendly concrete having similar or higher strength.
