A study on addition of scrap in properties of concrete
Author(s): Abhishek Chanchal and Ritesh Jain
Abstract: Infrastructure plays an important role for the development of any area. Concrete is a main constituent of the Civil Engineering structures for the infrastructure development. Concrete is one of the widely used construction material in the world after water. Wastes are generated in large quantity from every steel industry. The main objective of this investigation is to study the effect of addition of lathe scrap in concrete. It is expected that the use of lathe scrap in concrete improves strength properties of the concrete. Different strength tests and their related results helped in concluding that lathe scrap can be used as good fiber addition material in concrete.
