Study of Compressive Strength of Lightweight Concrete Using Natural and Artificial Aggregate

Rita Singh, Dr. Ravindra Kumar

Abstract: The intention of the research is to study the comparison of concrete with pumice as natural aggregate and crushed AAC blocks as artificial light-weight aggregate with partial replacement of normal weight coarse aggregate by focusing on its capability to reduce dead load without a considerable reduction in compressive strength. Grade of concrete?M40 has been in use for this project. Testing is geared up for Concrete cube testing as per I.S. guidelines (516-1959), aggregate testing as per I.S. guidelines (2386-1963, 383-1970). Comparison of Pumice and Crushed AAC block for making 90, cubes of concrete mixes. The coarse aggregate has replaced by pumice and crushed AAC blocks like 20%, 25%, 30%, and 35% respected to I.S code and check the compressive strength after 7, 28 and 56 days. In all 90 test specimen was prepared for pumice & crushed AAC for M40 grade concrete.

Keywords: Light-weight Aggregate: Pumice stone, Crushed AAC Block.
