Experimental Investigation On Partial Replacement Of Fine Aggregate By Wood Ash On Concrete

A.Ananthi Rajesh


This paper intends to investigate the possibility of producing low costs enhanced performance concrete by wood ash. By taking the enormous amount of sand in river beds, it affects the environment badly and demand for fine aggregate is increase day by day. So by partially replacing Prosopis juliflora ash with fine aggregate in construction field, It can serve both the purposes of meeting the demands of construction industry and at the same time providing a green and clean environment. This expectation of partial replacement of fine aggregate by using wood ash in concrete gives the general characteristic like strength. The conventional concrete mixture consists of cement, coarse aggregate, fine aggregate and water in this project wood ash is used with different percentage of 10%, 20%, 30%. The mixture is prepared for M20 grade concrete cubes and conduct the compressive strength on 7 days, 14 days and 28 days .
