Abstract

Abstract: The Concrete is a composite construction material plays a vital role in the construction of the nation’s infrastructure. One of the important ingredients of conventional concrete is natural sand or river sand. The issue of environmental degradation and expensive nature of the river sand make us to switch on to the alternative sources. Lots of researches has been done to replace the sand, in this project we study the effect of Sugar and replace the river sand by M-Sand with 50% and 100%. Its micro-filling effect reduces pores in concretes and provides better moisture resistivity and thus durability. M40 grade of concrete was used and the specimens were tested at 7, 14 and 28 days. Effective use for waste material and thus cost effective and performs as well as naturally occurring sand. Different percentages of admixtures as Sugar are selected in the evaluation as 0.25 % and 0.5% by weight of cement. The experimental work mainly concluded after evaluation workability and concentrates with compressive strength and split tensile strength and acid attack test on concrete enhanced when admixtures like Sugar added into the concrete Mix. Keywords:M-Sand, Addition, Sugar, Admixture, Concrete
