Abstract

Abstract: Abundant availability of natural resources has become a dream for present day engineering society due to large scale consumptions. The unaccountable population growth rate makes problem of availability of coarse aggregate for construction more severe. Due to rapid Urbanization and industrialization, consumption of aggregates increased to manifold. So, the researchers must find the alternatives for the coarse aggregate. The increase in population also increases the industrial by- products, domestic wastes etc. It has been noticed in India that coconut shell (CS) as an agricultural waste, requires high dumping yards as well as an environmental polluting agent. If it can be utilized as a coarse aggregate, then it should be a boon rather than a ban to the civil engineering society. This study aims in development the mix design of lightweight aggregate concrete using CS as coarse aggregate together with cement and river sand. Experimental study is undertaken to investigate the effects of replacement of coarse aggregate by different percentages of coconut shell on mechanical properties of this composite concrete. The test values obtained from experiment was verified with different codes from different countries.
