Paper Title
To study the effect of untreated kitchen wastewater on strength, workability characteristics of concrete as mixing and curing water’s
  Uma G.,  Rohan S. Gurav

In construction industry, the cement concrete is most important and widely used material. The concrete is the conventional mixture of cement, sand, coarse aggregates and water in a mix proportion. The strength of concrete is more in the hardened state. Concrete is preferred and also easy in manufacturing process. For manufacture and curing of concrete, water is the most essential constituent. The main sources of water are river, lake, pond and well water etc. Due to rapid growth of industrialization and construction activity water is depleting day by day. Hence, we must take one step forward towards conservation or reuse of water in the construction industry. By reusing or recycling the water or wastewater in construction industry we can minimize water scarcity problem and wastewater disposal problems. The major source of wastewater is for domestic, industrial and commercial area. In the construction industry water is required in a large quantity as a curing waters for cement concrete structures. So an attempt has been made to study the effect of untreated kitchen wastewater on the strength characteristics of cement concrete as curing water's. For the present study the dissertation work is carried out on m30 grade of concrete, the curing of these specimens was carried out by using kitchen wastewaters for a period of 7, 14, and 28days. An attempt is made to study the strength characteristics of m30 grade of concrete. The analysis of the test results shows considerably increase in the compressive strength has 31.40 n/mm2 for a curing period of 28days and also increase in split tensile strength as 3.42 n/mm2 for a curing period of 28days is achieved by using kitchen wastewater's as a curing water's. This study will motivate and help for utilization of kitchen wastewater n the construction industry as curing water's effectively. Hence we can reduce the water scarcity problems and also reduce the usage of potable water in the construction industry.

Keywords- kitchen waste water, portable water concrete
