Abstract:

Normal or conventional concrete uses more of the raw material like sand, gravels, fly ash etc. Its usage has been increased to an enormous amount where there are likely chances of meeting with the demand of such construction materials. It may also lead to increase the cost of the materials drastically. To overcome such situations, alternate building materials were emerging now-a-days. This study has been made as an attempt in improvising the technological ailment by using recycled materials for construction. Marble dusts and Fibres, the abundantly available materials were selected for partially replacements in concrete. Marble powder being a residual content is used in concrete with various proportions as a partial replacement of sand in the proportion of 15% and 20% by weight. Polypropylene fibre being used for the post cracking purposes in concrete is used here for increasing the mechanical properties of the concrete along with the addition of Marble powder. The fibre is added at the proportion of 0.2% of total volume of the concrete. This experimental investigation is carried out to evaluate the ability to increase the mechanical properties of the concrete by using Marble powder and polypropylene fibre and to determine the optimum dosage of those ingredients.
