    Study on characteristic strength of partially replaced natural aggregates by flyash aggregates in concrete

    Geena George* and Asha K

    To explore more benefits of flyash in construction industry, a study has conducted on strength characteristics of M30 grade concrete using manufactured flyash coarse aggregate as a partial replacement of natural granite coarse aggregate. The aggregates were manufactured using cement in lesser quantities and flyash in excess quantity various trail mixes were conducted and finally a suitable mix is selected for large quantity production. Cubes, beams and cylinders were casted by partial replacing natural coarse aggregate by 25%, 30%, 35%, 40%, 45% and 50% of manufactured fly ash aggregate. The strength parameters such as compressive strength, flexural strength and split tensile strength of the casted cubes, beams and cylinders were tested respectively.
