Egg Shell Powder Partial Replaced With Cement Concrete

Atul Kumar [14]

Abstract: This paper reports the results of experiments evaluating the use of egg shell powder from egg production industry as partial replacement for ordinary Portland cement concrete. The chemical composition of the egg shell powder and compressive strength of the cement concrete was determined. The cement concrete of mix proportion in which cement is partially replaced with egg shell powder as 5 %, 10 %, 15 % by weight of cement. The compressive strength was determined at curing ages 7, 28 days. There was a sharp decrease in compressive strength beyond 5 % egg shell powder substitution. The admixtures used are Saw Dust ash, Fly Ash and Micro silica to enhance the strength of the concrete mix with 5 % egg shell powder as partial replacement for cement. In this direction, an experimental investigation of compressive strength, split tensile strength, and Flexural strength was undertaken to use egg shell powder and admixtures as partial replacement for cement in con In this developing world, many countries are going to urbanization due to population growth. Since India is one of developing countries, the construction will grow in the future
