Flyash, Coarse Aggregate, Styrofoam


This study deals about replacement cement and coarse aggregate by Styrofoam (50%) and fly ash (10%). This can reduce the weight of the concrete effectively. The mix design is followed by IS 10262 (2009) (GUIDELINES FOR CONCRETE MIX DESIGN PROPORTIONING). The M25 concrete is used. The 53-grade cement is used. The compression test, split tensile test and flexural strength were going to be done at the interval of 7 days, 14 days and 20 days. The class C fly ash is used since it has both pozzolanic property and Cementous property.
