Study of Properties of Concrete containing Copper Slag as Fine Aggregate
Ashok Meti,  Swapnil Malipatil,  Naveen Hanchinal
Concrete is a widely used construction material for various types of structures due to its durability. Durability is a major concern for concrete structures exposed to aggressive environments. Due to the high cost of natural sand used as a ﬁne aggregate and the rising emphasis on sustainable construction, there is a need for the construction industry to search for alternative materials as ﬁne aggregates in concrete production. Copper slag is one of the materials which is considered as waste materials in the production of copper, which can be used as partial replacement of fine aggregates in concrete. This report presents the results of an experimental study on various durability tests on concrete containing copper slag as partial replacement of sand. In this report, M30 grade of concrete was designed and tests were conducted with different percentage of copper slag as fine aggregate in concrete. The results indicate that workability increases with increases in the copper slag percentages. The Compressive Strength is increased up to 8.63 % as compared to normal concrete.
Keywords- Copper Slag, Fine Aggregate, Compressive Strength, Tensile Strength & Durability.
