Iron Ore Waste As Coarse Aggregate
Coarse aggregates in concrete has no negative effects on the short term properties of hardened concrete. Mohammed Nadeem1, Arun D. Pofale (2012), studied on replacement of coarse and fine aggregate in concrete by slag. Concrete of M20, M30 and M40 grades were considered for a W C ratio of 0.55, 0.45 and.Key points. • ‘Aggregate’ is a term for any particulate material. It includes gravel, crushed stone, sand, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates. Aggregate may be natural, manufactured or recycled. • Aggregates make up some 60 -80 of the concrete mix. They provide compressive strength and bulk to concrete.COMPONENTS OF CONCRETE Concrete is made up of two components, aggregates and paste. Aggregates are generally classi! ed into two groups, ! ne and coarse, and occupy about 60 to 80 percent of the volume of concrete. The paste is composed of cement, water, and entrained air and ordinarily constitutes 20 to 40 percent of the total volume.Jan 01, 2021 Besides, the nuclear magnetic resonance technique was applied to evaluate the pore structure. The testing results showed that the use of recycled coarse aggregate (RCA) led to the reduction of strength of concrete, but this strength loss can be compensated by adding iron ore tailings (IOTs) to concrete.
