Paper Title
Cocunut shell and Waste Glass based Concrete - A comparative Study
  Tajamul Magrey ,  Bilal Malik,  Mohd Akeeb Dar,  Nazeer Bijran

Concrete is the premier civil engineering material. Concrete manufacturing involve consumption of ingredients like cement, aggregates, water & admixtures. Among all the ingredients, aggregates form the major part. More than 50000 billion tonnes of aggregate are produced each year in the world. Use of natural aggregates in such a rate leads to a question about the preservation of natural aggregate sources. In addition, operation associated with aggregates extraction and processing is the principal causes for environmental concern. The most widely used fine aggregate for the making of concrete is the natural sand mined from the riverbeds. However, the availability of river sand for the preparation of concrete is becoming scarce due to the excessive non-scientific methods of mining from the riverbeds, lowering of water table, sinking of the bridge piers, etc. are becoming common. The present scenario demands identification of substitute materials for the river sand for making concrete. Recently in the environmental issues, restrictions of local and natural access or sources and disposal of waste material are gaining great importance. Today, it becomes more difficult to find a natural resource. Use of the waste materials not only helps in getting them utilized in cement, concrete and other construction materials, but also has numerous indirect benefits such as reduction in land fill cost, saving in energy, and protecting environment from possible pollution effect. It also helps in reducing the cost of concrete manufacturing. In light of this in the contemporary civil engineering construction, using alternative materials in place of natural aggregate in concrete production makes concrete as sustainable and environmentally friendly construction material. In this research, the effect of coconut shell as partial replacement of coarse aggregate and waste glass as partial replacement of fine aggregate on the properties of concrete were studied. The characteristic properties of concrete such as compressive strength, flexural strength, and water absorption of various mixes were reviewed in this work.
