Controlled Low Strength Material (CLSM), Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag, Manufacture Sand, Compressive Strength Test, Durability Test


Controlled Low Strength Material (CLSM), commonly referred to as flowable fill, has been used for years as a trench backfill, sub base preparation and to increase the SBC of soil by soil treatment. It is a low strength material in order to make bricks the ingredient materials percentage is varied to achieve more strength. Materials used are cement, GGBS, M- sand and Laterite soil with 0.8 w/c ratio. By varying material percentages 16 trial mix proportions were tested. Based on compressive strength test results four mix proportions were selected and bricks were casted. Strength parameters of CLSM bricks were tested. Brick having 20% cement shows high strength and all the bricks of different mixes satisfying IS standards and recommendation.
