Abstract

Copper slag obtained during smelting to extract copper metal from the ore. The review of the characteristics of copper slag encourages several applications such as for manufacture of cement, in aggregates, Landfill, glass, tiles etc. Many researchers have already found it is possible to use copper slag as a concrete aggregate. The workability and strength characteristics were assessed through a series of test on different mix proportions at 10% incremental copper slag by weight replacement of sand. M35 grade concrete was used and the tests were conducted for various proportions of copper slag replacement with sand of 0%,10%,20%,30%,40%,50%,60%,70%,80%,90%,100% in concrete. Then the concrete where cured for 7, 28, 60 and 90 days. Then they were tested for compressive strength, split tensile strength, and flexural strength. Finally the results were compared with the concrete made with the Portland Pozzolana cement (PPC) and fine aggregate (sand).
