ANALYSIS OF PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE USING EXPANDED CLAY PEBBLES AS FINE AGGRIGATES
Keywords:Clay Soil Aggregates, Compressive Strength, Temperature Reduction, Transmitting Temperature and Grade of Concrete
Aggregate occupies most of the volume of the concrete. It is the stuff that the cement paste coats and binds together. The composition, shape, and size of aggregate all have significant impact on the workability, durability, strength, weight and shrinkage of concrete. In this paper analysis of properties of concrete using clay soil aggregates as course aggregate in concrete, transmitting temperature and temperature reduction time to normal Portland cement in different grade of concrete. Using clay soil aggregate as fine aggregate the transmitting temperature and temperature reduction time will reduces. This gives better results hence we can use clay soil aggregate as course aggregate where temperature of concrete plays an important role. Using expanded clay pebbles as fine aggregates increases the aesthetic appearance, so this can be used in manufacturing ceramics, tiles and crockeries.
