Abstract

Red mud is a waste material generated by the Bayer process widely used to produce alumina from bauxite throughout the world. Fly ash is a by product of coal-fired electric generating plants. The coal is pulverized and blown into burning chamber for immediate combustion. The aim of the present research work was to investigate the possibility of replacing the Portland cement by Red Mud and Fly Ash. Because of storing issues, the waste negatively affects the environment. To solve this problem, Portland cement was replaced upto 40% ( 20% red mud & 20% fly ash ) by weight of cement. And evaluating its compressive strength and tensile strength of red mud & fly ash concrete. This study examines the effects of red mud on the properties of hardened concrete. The test result show that how its compressive strength and tensile strength decreases with increase red mud content.
