Experimental Study on Partial Replacement of Cement by Palm Ash


Cement is the essential construction material for making concrete which provide good binding among aggregates and also provide high strength. But cement releases high amount of CO2 during manufacture. In order to reduce the environmental menace and also to enhance the property of concrete Palm ash based concrete are used. Palm ash based concrete containing palm ash as partial cement substitute. The partial replacement percentages are 10%, 20%, 30%. In this investigations properties such as compressive strength and durability strength of palm ash based concrete and conventional concrete are find out. Results are tabulated and discussed. The palm ash based concrete properties are also compared with the conventional concrete. The palm ash based concrete is very economical and also eco friendly concrete.
