Comparison of the Use of Palm Fronds and Reeds Plants as Alternative Materials of Sand in Concrete Mixture / Based on GIS Technique
Abstract: This research focuses on the environmentally friendly material used as an alternative to traditional materials of concrete, such as reeds and palm fronds to reduce environmental pollution. This study aims to make a compression study between the effects of powder and ash of untreated palm frond and reed on the compressive strength of concrete which have been replaced by the weight of sand as follows, 1% and 5%. Also, the GIS software (V.10.1) is used for comparing the spread areas of palms and reeds in Yusufiya /Baghdad/Iraq during the years 2015-2020. The results showed that the mixture has 1% vegetal fibers gives better compressive strength for 28 days age as compared with plain concrete and 5% vegetal fibers mixture.
