PARTIAL REPLACEMENT OF CEMENT WITH TILE POWDER IN M40 GRADE CONCRETE (141313)

Abstract : Ceramic waste deposit cau ses different types of environmental pollution like a ir,water and soil pollution . Tile powder is a fine residue after manufacturing of tiles. Chemical composition tests conduct ed on the ceramic tile proved that it contain s 64.56% silica,which is a p redominent feature of pozzol ans. The use of waste products produced by tile industries has been focused to reduce it for industries and economical reasons. The usage of more cement in concrete becomes uneconomical which is partially replaced with tile powder in cement concrete. For this purpose,the concrete specimens are prepared by partially replacing the cement with tile powder at different percentages like 10%,20%,30%,40% and 50% (by weight). These specimens are tested for compressive strength,split tensile strength and flexural strength after 7,28 and 56 days of curing. These values are compared with the test values of conventional concrete. The test results proves that the average compressive strength,split - tensile strength and flexural strength of the concrete are ac hieved up to 30 % replacement of cement with tile powder without affecting the characteristics of M40 grade concrete.
