Experimental Investigation on Partial Replacement of Cement by Prosopis Juliflora in Self Compacting Concrete

Dharaneswari .V .K | Sharmila Devi .K

Abstract: The experimental investigations are carried out to study the effect of Prosopis Juliflora in Self compacting concrete by partial replacement on cement. In today?s world the main emphasis is on green and sustainable development. Prosopis Juliflora inflorescence is small, green-yellowish spikes without any particular fragrance or attractiveness, though relished by bees. Prosopis Juliflora is one of these species that has performed much better than many native woody species. At the moment, Prosopis Juliflora provides approximately 75% of fuel wood needs of rural people in arid and semi-arid regions of India. These species has become naturalized and spread over the greater part of north-west, central, west and south India. Under the right conditions, Prosopis Juliflora can produce a variety of valuable goods and services like construction materials, charcoal, soil conservation and rehabilitation of degraded and saline soils. But wide spread Prosopis Juliflora has become an invader species so removal of the plant is into necessity now. Mostly the plant is removed by uprooting and is burnt. In order to save the environment and to save the resources we have come up with using the Prosopis Juliflora ash as the partial replacement of cement. So using Prosopis Juliflora ash is a major step towards sustainable development. Cement will produce equal amount of greenhouse gas (co2) which increase the global warming. As the amount of cement is reduced greenhouse gases also reduced. Utilization of Juliflora ash as a partial substitution for cement is one of the promising method to increase the strength in SCC. The strength parameter like Compressive strength of Self compacting concrete in M30 grade with the partial replacement of Prosopis Juliflora ash in cement are evaluated.Materials used in this project are cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate, Juliflora ash and water and also admixtures whenever it is required. By doing this project we would know about the using of innovative materials in construction to increase the strength of concrete to make the construction economical. The utilization of Juliflora ash in SCC solves the problem of its disposal thus keeping the environment free from pollution.
