Abstract: Use of agro and industrial wastes in concrete production will cause sustainable concrete era and greener habitat. In this study an endeavor has been made to discover the propriety of Sugarcane Bagasse Ash (SCBA) and Granite Waste (GW) as partial replacement for traditional river sand. The percentage substitute is calculated based on the particle packing approach. The properties such as compressive, splitting tensile, flexural strengths and modulus of elasticity, water absorption, sorptivity and rapid chloride penetration test of the concrete with bagasse ash and granite waste as a partial replacement for river sand and to evaluate them with those of conventional concrete made with river sand fine aggregate are investigated. The test results show that the strength aspects of bagasse ash-granite waste concrete are higher than those of the conventional concrete. Moreover, they suggest that the bagasse ash-granite waste concrete has higher strength characteristics and remains in the lower permeability level shows improvement in overall durability of concrete than the conventional concrete.
Keywords: Granite waste, Permeation, RCPT, Sorptivity, Strength, Sugarcane bagasse ash.
