Abstract

India is the second largest in major sugar producing countries after Brazil. Due to that there is increase in bagasse as a by product from the sugar mill. Bagasse is the fibrous residue of sugar cane after crushing and extraction of juice. Sugar cane bagasse ash is the waste product of the combustion of bagasse for energy in sugar factories. Sugar cane bagasse ash is disposed of in landfills and is now becoming an environmental burden. In this experimental research work concrete cubes, beams and cylinders of M25 grade were casted and tested to examine various properties of concrete like workability, compressive strength, split tensile strength, modulus of elasticity and flexural strength. Sugar cane bagasse ash was partially replaced with cement at 2, 4, 6 and 8 % by weight of cement in concrete. From the results we can conclude that optimum amount of sugar cane bagasse ash that can be replaced with cement is 6% by weight without any admixture.
