Feasibility of Quarry Dust to Replace River Sand as Fine

dust as fine aggregate is studied to find out its suitability to replace river sand in structural concrete. Furthermore, use of fly ash with 30% of cement replaced by fly ash is explored as means of increasing the performance of the quarry dust mixes. Quarry dust concrete at the tested water cement ratio is found to have higher compressive strength compared to sand mixes. However, use of

The results showed that river sand concrete had greater density and compressive strength than quarry dust concrete for all curing ages. At 28 days of curing, river sand concrete exceeded the target compressive strength by 36%, whereas quarry dust concrete was less than the target compressive strength by 12%.
