Experimental Investication of Concrete on Partial Replacement of Cement by Cockle Shell
In developing countries where concrete is widely used, the high and steadily increasing cost of concrete has made construction very expensive. The concepts of eco-friendly building are getting more attention today. The use of materials from natural sources is an alternative to the realization of the green building concept. The cement is partially replacement with 10 %, 20%, and 30% by cockle shell powder by using M20 grade concrete. The water cement ratio is maintained for this mix design is 0.5. The workability, compressive strength & tensile strength test of concrete with various percentage of cockle shell, as fine aggregate replacement are done workability, compressive and tensile strength test were conducted in accordance to IS 456.
