Abstract

This study involves the experimental investigation of effect of fly ash and dry sludge on the properties of fly ash bricks. On seeing the present day demand for bricks, an attempt is made to study the behavior of bricks manufactured using, different waste materials like dry sludge and fly ash. The main aim of this work was to compare the compressive strength of the bricks. The disposal of sludge has always been by dumping in the soil, this has hazardous effect on the air and environment at large. They can be recycled for use in construction industry without producing any harm to human and environment. Research has shown that they can be used in manufacturing of cement. Sludge and fly ash mixed with Quarry dust and cement in various percentage keeping the Quarry dust and cement with constant percentage of 30% and 20% respectively, while fly ash is replaced with sludge from 0% to 100% consequently with 20% replacement. The result shows that fly ash and sludge together can be used in the alternative bricks, the compressive strength and water absorption is good and weight of the brick is reduced up to10% from the nominal bricks.
