Experimental Investigation of ceramic waste concrete using magnetized water
Published in Fast Track Publications

Abstract
Concrete is a composite material made withcement, aggregates and water in construction industry. Newinnovations and developments in construction field, the globalconsumption of natural aggregates is increasing day by dayand at the same time production of solid wastes from themanufacturing units and demolitions are also very high. Theceramic industry generates about 30 per cent wastes everyyear. Its massive part is used into landfill. Use of ceramicwastes in construction industry is very low because of absenceof guidelines, prevention of risk, less information and skills.The water which is subjected to high intense and focusedmagnetic field is called magnetized water. Magnetic watershows significant results on workability, strength andmechanical properties of concrete. However, the research onceramic wastes as partial substitute for coarse aggregate aswell as the effect of magnetic water on compressive strengthand workability of concrete has not been studied. Thisresearch has been concluded with focus on examining use ofceramic tile wastes as partial substitute for coarse aggregatesand magnetic water can prove to be useful. This experimentcontains the preparation of standard cubes of various concretemixes of ceramic waste, magnetic water and tap water. In thisproject, we have attempted to replace the various proportionsceramic wastes as coarse aggregate with normal water andmagnetic water, compressive strength and workability of theconcrete was calculated as well as various properties of theceramic waste and magnetic water are studied.
