concrete. Quarry dust is a residue tailing or other non-voluble material after extraction and processing of rocks to form fine particle less than 4.75mm. Quarry waste, which is generally considered as a waste material, causes an environmental load due to disposal problem. The successful utilization of quarry
The effect of quarry dust on the flexural strength of concrete has been experimentally studied and reported in this paper. Concrete used was prepared by replacing 25% and of sand by weight with quarry dust.
clear picture that quarry dust can be utilized in concrete mixtures as a good substitute for natural river sand giving higher strength at 50% replacement. Index Terms- Concrete, quarry dust, river sand, compressive strength. I. INTRODUCTION oncrete is the most widely used composite material today.
UTILISATION OF 'AS GENERATED' QUARRY DUST AS A FINE AGGREGATE IN CONCRETE L. A. Joseph, 1N. Satheeshkumar and D.A.R. Dolage Department of Civil Engineering, The Open University of Sri Lanka INTRODUCTION The use of quarry dust as an alternative to traditionally used fine aggregate in concrete …
5. CONCLUSIONS Based on the experimental investigation, it is found that quarry dust can be used as an alternative material to the natural river sand. Usage of quarry dust will also reduce the cost of concrete because it is a waste material from quarries. Use of quarry dust in concrete will also reduce the disposal problem.
suggest that concrete containing mixtures of lateritic sand and quarry dust can be reasonably used in structural elements as for normal concrete (concrete with river sand as fine aggregate). Keywords: concrete, flexural strength, tensile strength, lateritic sand, quarry dust.
quarry dust will be a techno economic solution to the above problem .The present research work was carried out to study the strength and stability of concrete containing quarry dust
Abstract: This study is an attempt to investigate the suitability of quarry dust as a partial replacement of coarse aggregates in concrete making. Samples of concrete cubes were made with varying proportions of quarry dust replacing the coarse aggregate. It was foreseen that the utilization of quarry …
concrete and reduce the cost. Quarry Dust: Quarry Dust a waste product obtained during the process of quarrying. In general a quarry dust is used a filler materials attempt was made in partial replacement of fine aggregate (sand). In addition to this, an alternative source for the potential replacement of natural
at all ages. The compressive strength of concrete decreases with increase in Quarry Stone Dust beyond 60%. 4. The maximum value of Tensile strength was observed at40% sand + 60% QSD at all ages. The tensile strength of Geo Polymer concrete decreases with increase in Quarry Stone Dust …
increase in quarry dust content. Quarry dust particles absorbed more water as compared to sand and thus negatively impacting the workability of concrete mix. Slump was minimum for the concrete mixture containing 40% quarry dust in place of fine aggregates. The variation of slump with quarry dust content is depicted in Fig. 3.
quantity of Quarry dust by 0%, 50%, 40%, 30%, 20% and 10% accordingly. In this study, compressive strength, split tensile strength, Non-Destructive testing (Rebound hammer) and flexural strength of self-curing concrete with replacement of red mud and quarry dust was compared with the conventional concrete specimens.
Detailed research works needs to be done in using quarry dust of fines less than 150 mm micron to replace a portion of cement. Objectives of project work could be summarised as to Compare the properties of conventional concrete mix M30 with the properties of concrete with granite quarry dust partially replacing cement.
maximum content of quarry dust partial replacement of cement in concrete. The percentages of quarry dust partial replacement of cement in concrete are 0, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 35%, and 40%.

sand) and quarry dust. Quarry dust, a by-product from the crushing process during quarrying activities is one of such materials. Granite fines or rock dust is a by-product obtained during crushing of granite rocks and is also called quarry dust. Concrete containing quarry dust as fine
(c) The compressive strength results of quarry dust concrete (cubes) were obtained in the third series, where M20, M25, and M30 grades of concrete with 20, 25, and 30 percent replacement of quarry dust and also workability are studied by varying the water-cement ratio of …
This paper presents the feasibility of the usage of Quarry Rock Dust as hundred percent substitutes for Natural Sand in concrete. Mix design has been developed for three grades using design an approach IS, ACI, USBR, RN.No.4 and BRITISH for both conventional concrete and quarry dust concrete.
of demolished concrete, glass and plastics as partial substitutes to concrete. J. Selwyn Babu et.al., had studied the physical and mechanical properties of concrete, replacing fine aggregate with GGBFS and BFS. Quarry Dust Waste (QDW) has the same phycial characteristics of fine aggregate, as its size and properties are very to sand. In this
