Abstract
This study presents Experimental research on the physical properties of byone sand and evaluation on strength of byone sand concrete. Byone sand (Pali Lin, Taunggyi) is used as fine aggregate (F.A) and Portland cement (Double Rhinos Grade 42.5) are used in this study. Crushed stone aggregate is used as coarse aggregate (C.A). In this study, the physical properties of local materials such as cement, fine aggregate (byone sand) and coarse aggregate are determined according to the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) procedure and ASTM designations. The suitable water content for Local Concrete is found to be 180 kg/m3. Mix design and compression tests are made for various water/cement (w/c) ratios, using concrete samples of 15cm diameter and 30cm height cylinder. The strengths of concrete are determined at 7 days, 28 days and 91 days to investigate the strength development with age. The 28 day concrete compressive strengths are found greater than 3000psi for w/c up to 0.7. Water content of 180 kg/m3 is used. The American Concrete Institute (ACI) Method is used in Concrete Mix Design. cylinder samples of 15cm diameter and 30cm height are used. In this research, the concrete mixes with sieved sand give the compressive strength of up to 5500 psi after testing. So this byone sand shows high potential to use as one of the ingredients of concrete mix to use in constructions.
