Poornima V., Ananthkumar M., S. Barathi Kumar, and K. Imthiyaz Ahamed, “Suitability of dolomite silica-sand in partial replacement with m- sand for cement mortar”, IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering, vol. 577, p. 012135, 2019.[Abstract]

One of the significant issues in the construction industry is that the cost of natural sand is expanding quickly and furthermore exhaustion of common assets happens at a quicker rate. To beat this issue we require a feasible material like the natural sand. Despite the fact that M-sand is utilized as a replacement for River sand, it has numerous burdens in view of its angular size and failure to fill the pore spaces. Dolomite-Silica sand is a material which contains silica content and can fill pores in the mortar productively. The principle motivation behind this investigation is to partially supplant M-Sand with Dolomite-Silica Sand to enhance the Masonry Characteristics. Dolomite-Silica sand is blended with M-Sand in fluctuating extents of 30%, 50%, and 70%. Fresh and Hardened mortar tests had been completed. Compressive and Flexural Brick-Bond Masonry tests have likewise been done. Results demonstrate that Dolomite-Silica Sand can be utilized as a partial replacement for M-sand up to 50%.
