Durability Characteristics of Concrete with Partial Replacement of Cement by Hypo sludge

Hepzibah A, Ranjith Kumar M G


This research paper describes the low cost concrete by blending various ratios of cement by hypo sludge. The main objective of this paper is to reduce the CO2 emission due to cement industry and to reduce the industrial wastes disposal. The main aim of this research is the presentation of concrete however adding of paper waste with various proportions of hypo sludge.  Standard cubes and cylinders are used for this durability tests. These tests were carried out to evaluate the durability characteristics such as Acid attack, sulphate attack, alkaline attack, water absorption and sorptivity.
