Abstract: Todays concrete has a various chemical and mineral admixture to arrange the rising demands for constructability, service life and performance. This project work intends to investigate the possibility of producing low cost enhanced performance concrete by foundry sand. The compressive, tensile and flexural strength of various proportional concrete is compared with the conventional concrete. The present research work is aimed at studying the effect of the physical and chemical properties of foundry sand in M20 grade concrete. Based on previous literature which was 0 percentage without foundry sand and glass FIBRE that is control mix. 10, 20 and 30 % of foundry sand and 0.2,0.4 and 0.6 % of glass FIBRE on weight basis are considered for the present study. Along with this conplast sp430 is added as a superplasticizer. The main objective is to assess the impact of using foundry sand as partial replacement for fine aggregates and glass FIBRE as admixture in fresh and hardened properties of concrete along with the studies on mechanical properties.
Keywords: Flexural behavior, Glass FIBRE, foundry sand, conplast sp430, mechanical properties.
Scope of the Article: Mechanical Design
