Study on Strength of Concrete by Using Municipal Sewage as Cement

Shivakumar DS, Venkatesh S, Punith YM

Abstract: Concrete is the most widely used construction material because of its mould ability into any structural form and shape due to its fluid behavior at early stages. Cement is used in concrete is mainly to bind the materials. Municipal solid waste is tending to subject to landfill sites or open dumping. These are hazardous to the environment. Municipal solid waste is the byproduct produced from the combustion of these waste. The waste when burns possess various cementiceous and strength properties. In this project the fine Cement is being replaced by these municipal solid wastes and as a form of admixture to achieve the conservation of resources and to make concrete economical. The concrete mix of M30 grade is design by replacing Cement partially with municipal solid waste. The Cement is replaced in various proportions of 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, by mass. The entire test will be carried out on the grade of concrete at 7days, 14days and 28 days. The effect of municipal solid waste on strength of concrete such as compressive strength, split tensile strength, workability is to be investigate.

Keywords: MSW (Municipal Solid Waste), compressive strength, split tensile strength,workability.
