Abstract: In present situation, fast urbanization has made a gigantic interest for regular sand consequently made it considerably more costly. Excess extraction of sand ,trending not only depletion of water table but also streams and rivers are diverting in their direction which leads to floods. Elective materials in all types of constructions are acquainted with decrease the weight on normal materials, further maintaining the economical status of project. While additionally dealing with the encompassing condition. Squander Materials like Copper Slag, Flyash, Carbonate Sand, stone residue and so forth having silica sythesis (SiO2 ) could be utilized as a substitution for Fine aggregate in a concrete mix. In the process of manufacturing copper the bi-product Copper slag is produced in an heavy quantity. Copper slag has an high specific gravity and has glassy granular texture. Copper slag contains the same particle sizes as of fine aggregate so that it can be used as a replacement for fine aggregate in concrete mix. Here in this paper the main objective is to consider the utilization of Copper slag as an elective substitution material of Fine aggregate. Additionally examines the after effect of substitution of Fine aggregate with Copper slag on mechanical characteristics of cement concrete such as Compressive strength and Flexural strength.
Keywords: Concrete, Copper slag, Compressive strength, Fine Aggregate, Split Tensile Strength and Flexural Strength.
Scope of the Article: Concrete Engineering
