Abstract

The study involves the experimental investigation of effect of granite waste powder and corn cob in the clay brick and also effect of granite waste powder in the fly ash brick, on the compressive strength and water absorption property. Three different types of clay bricks were prepared, for first brick with clay and granite waste powder as a raw material, for second brick clay and corn cob waste as a raw material, for third brick clay, granite waste powder and corn cob as a raw material, after casting the clay bricks for different proportions, bricks were sun dried, and then burnt in the kiln, tests was carried out on the bricks. For fly ash bricks, fly ash, granite waste powder and lime was used as raw material, Fly ash bricks were manually casted, air dried 7, 14, 21 days compressive strength and percentage of water absorption was determined. Even the study involves the computation of embodied energy for the clay and fly ash bricks.
