Abstract: Concrete is one of the most commonly used materials in the field of construction. The main ingredients of concrete mix are aggregate, sand, cement and water. Usually, fine aggregate and cement used for concrete mix is river sand and ordinary Portland cement. Since excessive excavation of river sand causes erosion and failure to river beds which is becoming a serious environmental problem, to overcome this issue oyster shell is introduced to replace the river sand. The key point of this research was to develop a high performance concrete by replacing river sand with oyster shell and experimentally determine the effect of shell with the concrete. On this research the differences in the concrete properties with river sand and oyster shell will be determine and compared. Further, metakaolin and marble powder is to be used to add strength and give better workability to the concrete. This experiment is to be carried out using several tests which include initial tests for cement, fine aggregate and coarse aggregate, workability, compressive, tensile and flexural test etc.
Keywords: Marble powder, Metakaolin, Oyster Shell, and workability.
Scope of the Article: Concrete Engineering.
