Abstract :

Need for sustainable development has demanded the utilization of wastes from various industries in all possible applications. Sugarcane bagasse ash is one of such wastes available in huge quantity and has found to have pozzolanic characteristics. The amorphous silica in sugarcane bagasse ash comes into play when it is produced in controlled conditions, hence study was carried out to justify the pozzolanic behaviour of bagasse ash obtained from local sugar industry near Pandharpur. Present paper deals with study on effect of partial replacement of cement by sugarcane bagasse ash on the compressive strength of M20 grade of concrete. The cement was partial replaced by SCBA in the percentage of 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30% by weight of cement and it was observed that 20% replacement of cement by SCBA has no negative effect on compressive strength of concrete. Hence 20% replacement of cement by SCBA will result in economical production of concrete.
