Influence of Quarry Dust on Compressive Strength of Concrete


Objectives: In the present study, by-product of stone crushed, quarry dust is replaced as a fine aggregate with 20%, 30%, 40%, 50% replacement. Methods/Analysis: The fine aggregate is being replaced with fine aggregate and the compressive strength is determined for the concrete by testing the sample cube. The properties such as the specific gravity, fineness modulus, moisture content etc. are determined for the sample. Findings: Quarry dust is a decent option for normal sand and it is likewise very temperate, as quarry dust is a waste left from quarries. Novelty/Improvement: The quarry dust displays better quality because of good holding attributes.
