Self - Compacting Concrete Using Slag Sand as Fine Aggregate

Praveen Nayak S

Abstract: Concrete is the most widely used material in the world in the construction industry. It may be for superstructures, substructures, dams, etc. The demand for raw materials used for concrete continues to grow unabated. Earlier, natural river sand was used as fine aggregate for concrete. Due to the scarcity, expense, and non - availability of natural river sand and also due to ecological imbalance, we are reducing the use of sand as fine aggregate. So crushed stone sand is being used as fine aggregate in place of natural river sand. Keeping in mind the available natural resources, we can reduce the usage of crusher sand by using industrial by - products as fine aggregate. Steel plant industries produce slag as an industrial byproduct. In addition to reducing the usage of natural materials, by using slag we can avoid the dumping of slag sand, which is accumulated in large quantities in the steel industries.

Keywords: slag sand, ggbs, hardened and durability properties of concrete, natural resources, industrial by - products & self - compacting concrete
