Coconut Shell (CS), Coarse Aggregate, Silica Fume


Using coconut shell (CS) as replacement should be urged as a priority in environmental concerns and construction cost lowering measure. The stainless-stell scrap material which is usually available in lathe industries are used in modern construction and likewise in pavement construction. The rising cost of structural material is a different concern, the explanation for enhance in cost is large demand of concrete in excess to scarcity of raw materials. Hence many researches are focusing on techniques of using waste material in concrete as to their properties. In this particular study, M25 grade of concrete was prepared by replacing coconut shell by 2.5%, 5%, 7.5% and 10% as a coarse aggregate and in addition to that 1% of Lathe Scrap & 10% of Silica Fume as a replacement of cement is used. Test were carried out to find the compressive strength, split tensile strength & flexural strength using cubes & sorptivity test were conducted to study the durability aspects.
