Abstract

Now a day’s Building demand is constantly increasing & the capital cost of the construction of a building to is escalating, The demand for construction material is also increasing, at the same time the cost of the construction material is also increasing, To overcome these type of problems are want to found the new composition with low cost, Our ultimate aim of the project is: To introduce Fluorescent lamp powder as fine aggregate as one of the new material into the concrete. To find out the mix ratio by using Fluorescent lamp powder as fine aggregate in concrete to achieve the target mean strength. To solve the environmental problem of the huge amount of disposal Waste Fluorescent lamp. Moreover disposal of solid waste is the major problem in recent scenario. This project deals with the study of concrete by partial adding of fine aggregate with the Fluorescent lamp powder. Trial mixes are performed to achieve a concrete of M20 grade where natural fine aggregate is substituted by weight with crushed Fluorescent lamp powder at the rates varying from 2,4,6,8 and 10percentages. The properties of binder, aggregates and Fluorescent lamp powder are also studied. The tests are conducted after proper curing on 7 days and 28 days and the test results are furnished in tabular form as well as in graphical form.
