Coconut Shell, Concrete, Sand Aggregate


As there is an economic boom there is an increasing demand for infrastructure in order to accommodate the requirement. As this will lead to high demand for natural construction material and this will deplete them quickly. This paper has been presented in order to give the developers an insight about the usage of alternate material and how it make the whole project structurally and economically feasible. A number of literature has been reviewed and ultimately the coconut shell has been highlighted for a variety of function such as landfill, light weight concrete and structural concrete. This paper contains a thorough investigation on the application of coconut shell in structural concrete with the percentage of replacement of coconut shell as partially so that natural aggregates usage can be minimized. The experiment has been done in this project has considered 7 days and 28 compressive strength of concrete with no replacement 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25%. The coconut shells are widely available natural material and can be helpful to contribute to the sustainability of the construction.
