Abstract

An experimental investigation was carried out to evaluate the properties of cement Mortar. In this project study, ordinary Portland cement is replaced partially with pumice powder and fine aggregate is replaced partially with ceramic tile powder. In this research is to study the utilization of ceramic waste as a partial replacement of fine aggregate in a mortar. In this experimental investigation, prepare mortar cube of size 70.7mm x 70.7mm x 70.7mm with mix proportion 1: 3. The aim of this study is to determine the optimum % replacement of pumice powder in mortar cubes. .Cement mortar is made by replacing cement with pumice powder of different percentages like 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% & 25% with curing of 3, 7 & 28 days. The various combinations of pumice powder and ceramic waste powder were added to the mortar. Compressive strength test, splitting tensile strength test, water absorption test and the density test were performed and the results were analyzed. Mortar cube shows light weight behavior by replacing cement with pumice powder. The density of mortar is decreasing by adding pumice powder. The density of mortar cube is increasing by adding pumice powder and ceramic tile powder. Mortar cube shows almost similar strength compare to conventional mortar by adding pumice powder and ceramic tile powder.
