Abstract: This study fine aggregate is replaced with copper slag in different proportions in different grades of concrete and tests were evaluated on concrete members. The replacement of fine aggregate ranges from 0 to 100 percent is studied. Different concrete mixtures were prepared with different proportions of copper slag ranging from 0 to 100 percent. Different strength tests were conducted and the results obtained are compared with the nominal mix. For the above replacement an experimental study has been conducted on the design of RCC slab. For this work, simply supported slabs were prepared and static loads are applied on slabs, the load – deflection patterns were studied and plotted and the obtained results are compared with the control mix. the design of two way slab was done by using Staad Pro software and the results are presented.
Keywords: Concrete, copper slag, Durability, Fine aggregate, Replacement, and Slab.
