Effect of Waste Marble Powder as Filler Material on Fresh and Hardened Properties of Self-Compacting Concrete

Peerzada Danish,Dr. G. Mohan Ganesh

Nowadays, the quantity of Waste Marble Powder (WMP) as a waste material is significantly increased in India and is not fit for the environment. Therefore, the main objective is to utilize this WMP in Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) as a filler material. This was done in keeping the view the requirements of fines in the SCC and to find out effective utilization of waste marble powder. Fine aggregate is partially replaced by WMP. Five mixes were prepared, one without WMP and other four with varying amounts of WMP. The fresh concrete properties of SCC were measured by slump flow test, T50 cm, J-Ring test, V-funnel test, and L-Box test and the hardened concrete properties of SCC were tested for compressive strength test, splitting tensile test, flexural strength test and modulus of elasticity. It was found waste WMP can be replaced as filler material in developing the SCC and WMP helps us to reduce the total voids content in concrete. Finally, it showed a good correlation between fresh concrete properties and hardened concrete properties for SCC.
