Improvement in CBR Value of Soil using Waste Concrete Fines


Lovedeep Singh , Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College; Shahbaz Singh, Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College; Dr. K. S. Gill, Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College


CBR, subgrade, sub-base, waste concrete fines


India has established itself as one of the world's fastest growing economies and this growth has brought with it a significant boost in construction activities. With the rapid growth in construction activities, it is important to assess the amount of construction and demolition waste being generated and analyse the practices needed to handle waste in order to propose a sustainable construction approach. It has become essential to study construction waste generation and handling to develop accurate data and establish sustainable methods to manage construction waste. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle is highly useful in handling of construction and demolition waste. Basic method of recycling of concrete and masonry waste is to crush the debris to produce a granular product of given particle size. The problem arises in dealing with waste concrete fines. The finer particles of concrete generated during the crushing of waste concrete are left of no use. In this study the fines obtained from waste concrete have been used to observe their effect on the CBR value of soil by varying the amount of waste concrete fines at 10, 20, 30 and 40 %. The CBR value of the soil showed judicious improvement after mixing waste concrete fines in the soil.
