Paper Title
Effect Of Foundry Sand On Strength Characteristics Of Concrete
  Damandeep Singh,  DR. R.R.Singh

Concrete is the most extensively used construction material in the world, second to water. The use of concrete in the development of architecture and constructions is an integral part of modern human civilization. The key constituents of modern concrete are cement, river sand and coarse aggregates which play significant roles in mix design. Since the consumption of river sand is high in the rapid infrastructure growth, the demand for the same is also very high in developing countries like INDIA and thus there is need to tackle this problem. One such promising material which can be used as an alternative to natural sand in concrete is Waste foundry sand which is major by-product of casting industry and creates land pollution. Hence the reuse of this waste foundry sand is very vital and should be emphasised. Foundry sand is high quality silica sand. From centuries foundry sand has been used as a moulding casting material because it’s high thermal conductivity.
