|Title:||Effect of waste ceramic tiles as a partial replacement of aggregates in concrete|
|Citation:||Materials Today: Proceedings, 2019, Vol.19, , pp.875-877|
|Abstract:||In recent constructions, the consumption of ceramic materials is increasing day by day in the form of tiles, sanitary fittings, electrical insulators etc. But a large quantity of ceramic materials changes into wastage during processing, transporting and fixing due to its brittle nature. Therefore, using these wastes in concrete production could be an effective measure in maintaining the environment and improving the properties of concrete. Hence, the crushed waste ceramic tiles were used in concrete as a replacement for natural coarse aggregates with 0%, 5%, 10%, 15% 20% and 25% of substitution. After analyzing results, the optimum value of waste ceramic tile to be used within the concrete mix with a water/cement ratio of 0.5 was determined as about 20%. The findings revealed that using waste ceramic tile lead to enhancing the properties of concrete. � 2019 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
