Abstract
The purpose of this research is to find the suitability of copper slag as an alternative material for the river sand. This experimental study was divided into four phases, where in the first phase physical properties of cement, aggregates, Silica Fume and copper slag were examined. In the second phase, M30 grade of concrete is chosen to perform the effective replacement of copper slag with fine aggregate by replacement levels of 0%, 25%, 50% and 75% and the behavior of fresh and hardened properties of concrete was carried out. Cement is replaced by Silica Fume for 5%, 10% and 15% were used in the concrete by weight of cement. This project will present the results of an experimental study on various Compressive strength, Split tensile strength, Workability test and Durability on concrete containing copper slag and micro silica as partial replacement of sand and Cement respectively. From the test results, it was concluded that cube compressive strength, split tensile strength and Flexural Strength of concrete had higher strength for 25% replacement of copper slag with 10% Silica Fume. Copper slag replacement at 50% & 75% with Silica Fume showed a marginal variation in cube compressive strength, Split tensile strength and Flexural Strength.
