It is known that wastage in India in the construction industry is as high as 30%. This is a large, yet relatively simple and straightforward challenge needs to be tackled by engineers. These wastages are activities that absorb man hours, resources and materials but create no value. In this project, you will use those waste materials to make something productive by making a concrete using recycled aggregate and fly ash. After making concrete you will compare the compressive as well as flexural strength characteristics of the concrete made through NMA and TSMA.

Normal mixing approach (NMA) is the layman process where all the materials are mixed in defined proportion. The problem with this approach is when concrete gets hardened some void space remains inside it which affects its strength.
In a two-stage mixing approach (TSMA) a thin layer of cement slurry is created on the surface of RA which helps in feeling those void spaces. This results in the higher strength of the composite.
In this project, you are going to prepare two different sample of concrete using above two mixing approaches and determine compressive strength, the flexural strength of those on day 7 and 28.
