Abstract :

In the last few years various research and modification has been done to produce concrete which has the desired properties. Concrete is one of the most common materials used the construction field. The current area of research in the concrete was introducing foundry sand in the ordinary concrete. Generation of waste foundry sand as byproduct of metal casting industries causes environmental problems because of its improper d building material, construction and in other fields is essential for reduction of environmental problems. This research was carried out to produce an eco demonstrates the possible use of waste found concrete of two groups. In which first group concrete contains natural sand as a fine aggregate and second group concrete contains artificial sand as a fine aggregate. Ingredients for group 1 concrete are cement, course aggregate, artificial sand (fine aggregate) and same for group 2 concrete are cement, course aggregate, natural sand (fine aggregate). An experimental investigation was carried out on a concrete containing waste foundry sand in the range 10%, 15%, and 20% by weight for M tested and compared with conventional concrete in terms of strength. These tests were carried out on standard cube, cylinder and beam for 7 and 28 days to The aim of this research was to know the behavior and mechanical properties of concrete after addition of industrial waste in different proportion by tests like compressive strength by cube specimen, split tensile by cylindrical specimen and flexural strength by beam model. The research was a resource for exploring the potential use of foundry sand as an alternative to virgin raw materials.
