Abstract

Ceramic dust is produced as waste from ceramic bricks, roof and floor tiles and stoneware waste industries. Concrete (M35) was made by replacing % (up to 30%) of cement (OPC 53) grade with ceramic dust (passing 75µm) shows good workability, compressive strength, split-tensile strength, flexural strength and elastic modulus. In this experimental investigation, concrete specimens were tested at different age for different mechanical properties. The results show that with water – cement ratio (0.46), core compressive strength increase by 3.9% to 5.6% by replacing 20% cement content with ceramic dust. It was observed that no significant change in flexural strength and split-tensile strength when compared to the conventional concrete.
