The study revealed that offshore sand obtained from 2 to 7 km away from the western coast, Sri Lanka soon after dredging, could be used as an alternative to river sand. Keywords Offshore sand concrete fine aggregate chloride content.
Abstract River sand is most commonly used fine aggregate in concrete but due to acute shortage in many areas, availability, cost and environmental impact are major concern. To overcome from this crisis, partial replacement of sand with quarry dus t can be an economic alternative. In this project determi ne
F.M of Ideal fine aggregate for concrete applications are in range of 2.6 to 2.9. Fine sand lower F.M Value reduces the sand requirement in the total aggregate proportion. On the other hand, coarser sand will require higher sand in the total aggregate proportion to give a cohesive concrete mix consuming least cement.
Manufactured sand is an alternative for river sand. Due to fast growing construction industry, the demand for sand has increased tremendously, causing deficiency of suitable river sand in most part of the word. Due to the depletion of good quality river sand for the use of construction, the use of manufactured sand has been increased.
Fine Aggregates All fine aggregates, except air-cooled blast furnace slag sand or granulated blast furnace slag sand, must have an acid insoluble content of not less than 40 percent. When using these slag sands, the acid insoluble content must not be less than 25 percent. The acid insoluble content is determined by ITM 202.
Aggregates. Aggregates are inert granular materials such as sand, gravel, or crushed stone that, along with water and portland cement, are an essential ingredient in concrete. For a good concrete mix, aggregates need to be clean, hard, strong particles free of absorbed chemicals or coatings of clay and other fine materials that could cause the ...
Feb 12, 2015 The choice of fine aggregate, whether it is manufactured or natural sand, can greatly impact the fresh concrete properties of a mixture such as the workability, pumpability, and finishability. Natural sand has an ideal shape for use as fine aggregate in concrete. The natural sand particles are well-rounded and are usually nearly spherical.
Sand Ensure the sand or fine aggregate is clean and does not contain clay, organic material or salt. Generally, brickies or plasterers sand is not suitable for concrete due to its high clay content but can be used to make mortar. Coarse aggregate River gravel, crushed stone or blue metal is the most appropriate coarse ...
Nov 21, 2017 River sand-River sand is obtained from the bank of rivers and River beds. It is usually in white grey color and has a very fine quality. River sand is well graded, and it is good for all types of concrete and masonry works. The natural river sand was the cheapest resources of sand.
Dec 19, 2019 In this article we explore the importance of aggregate testing, various tests on aggregates and all the important properties of aggregates. Aggregate is one of the primary building materials and constituent of concrete. Aggregates are used in construction and include sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag, recycled concrete etc.
2.3.5 In the case of mixtures of fine and coarse aggregates, the material shall be separated into two sizes on 4-75-mmIS Sieve, and the samples offine and coarse aggregates shall be prepared as described under 2.3.3 and 2.3.4-.4 Procedure- The sample shall be spread in a thin layer on the bottom of the container and examined for clay lumps ...
Jan 21, 2019 Screening ensures the material is properly graded thats similar to river sand. 3 Washing Washing removes all the micro fine particles. In addition, fine aggregates for concrete and plaster sand are also formed. Advantages of M-Sand i Wide availability
May 12, 2020 Since concrete is the most used construction material universally, it is beneficial to consider concretes with alternative fine aggregates. This chapter examines the use of excavated natural soil and its combinations with natural sand, LD Slag and construction and demolition waste as fine aggregates in concrete.
faces difficulties in achieving targets. This warrants the need for alternatives to river sand to bridge the gap between demand and supply. The present study reveals the use of Palm Oil Clinker, a waste byproduct from palm oil industry, as an alternative material to fine aggregate in concrete production.

river sand in the concrete production. However, there is a dearth of literature on studies to find the suitability of using washed soil as a partial or full replacement for river sand as the fine aggregates in concrete production. Thus, there is a knowledge gap related to performance of washed soil as a fine aggregate in concrete in terms of
acceptable alternative material for replacing river sand having tremendous economic impact, conservation of natural resources and gainful re-cycling of process by-products. This slag sand is now extensively utilized and marketed by JSW Steel Vijayanagar works, India. Keywords granulation, concrete, fine aggregate, compressive strength,
Aug 15, 2018 This paper presents a study on suitability of replacing river sand with soil washed sand as fine aggregate in concrete. The study was based on a comparison of concrete performance produced from river sand and soil washed sand obtained from four locations in Sri Lanka Homagama, Rathnapura, Anuradhapura and Bandarawela. Several standard tests including Sieve analysis, Slump
The function of the fine aggregate is to assist in producing workability and uniformity in the mixture. The river deposits are the most common source of fine aggregate. Now-a-days the natural river sand has become scarce and very costly. Hence we are forced to think of alternative materials. The Quarry dust may be used in the place of river ...
increasing compressive strength by use of rock flour as fine aggregate instead of river sand. The idea of using quarry sand as an alternative aggregate was developed because granite which is the parent material is hard and dense and therefore can serve as an excellent aggregate material. Its use as a fine aggregate in concrete is
The conventional fine aggregate used was river sand, as the crisis for river sand has increased, the alternate fine aggregate with remarkably relative properties of being used. This study mainly focuses on the comparison of parameter of the concrete similar grade of river sand, lateritic sand M-Sand and silica sand.

A huge amount of concrete is consumed in construction works. About 35 volume of concrete is comprised of sand. Generally, cement and coarse aggregates are factory made products and their quality and standards can be easily controlled and maintained. The sand is usually excavated from river beds or river bank by digging.
Apr 05, 2021 Crushed sand CS or manufactured sand has emerged as an alternate fine aggregate for the conventional river sand RS in many parts of India. Since CS is a derived aggregate from the rock boulders, its particle shape, water absorption, and surface characteristics are different from that of the river sand aggregate which is formed as per ...
