Abstract

The research presented herein studies the effect of ESP, SCBA and CS as a partial replacement of cement in concrete. The experiment was done by replacing cement with materials specified above and tested for compressive strength at time intervals of 7 and 28 days. To understand chemical composition of these materials,X-ray fluorescence (XRF) were performed.The new and creative ways to create cement has led various type of cement being created. But various components required for the creation of cement are not readily available in most localities, hence a substitute is required which will fill the role of cement, without affecting the overall strength of the structure or being susceptible to weathering attacks. In this research paper, ESP, SCBA, CS are used on the Compressive strength of binder and mortar. This paper summarizes the research work on the properties of Copper Slag, Sugarcane Bagasse Ash, and egg shell powder when castoff as a partial replacement for Ordinary Portland Cement. The necessary lab tests were conducted for all the materials to know their chemical and physical properties. OPC was replaced with ESP, SCBA, CS by weight at 5,10,20. Consequently, the use of slag and ash in concrete lessens environmental pollution, enhances the properties of concrete and also reduces the cost.
