Sanjay Salla , Prof. Jayeshkumar Pitroda , Dr. (Smt.) B. K. Shah . "COMPARATIVE STUDY ON JUTE FIBRE AND BANANA FIBRE IN FLY ASH BRICKS". International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT). V4(4):850-856 Apr 2013. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group.


Increasing concern about the global warming, primarily due to deforestation has led to the ban on use of clay brick by government in buildings construction. Subsequently, a large action plan for the development use of fly ash bricks substitute has resulted in creation of more awareness about the use of fly ash based building materials. In the past one decade or so the joint efforts by R & D organizations, private industries and funding agencies provided the much need ed thrust for the actual transfer of technical know - how and product to the end users. Most of the developing countries are very rich in agricultural and natural fibre. Except a few exceptions, a large part of agricultural waste is being used as a fuel. Ind ia alone produces more than 400 million tonnes of agricultural waste annually. It has got a very large percentage of the total world production of rice husk, jute, stalk, jute fibre, banana fibre and coconut fibre. All these natural fibres have excellent p hysical and mechanical properties and can be utilized more effectively in the development of building materials (Inclusion in fly ash bricks) for various building applications..
