Owing to day to day increase in the construction activities there been the scarcity in the ingredients of concrete. In addition to this restriction imposed by the government department for safe guiding the environmental problems also increase the shortage of such materials. Hence researches are being undertaken to find the other natural and durable resources for the above.
Natural resources are of two types-the renewable and non-renewable. Renewable resources which can be recycled and utilized for our benefits. But non-renewable resources are those, which once removed and utilized are lost forever.
The closeness of scaled down scale breaks at the mortar-add up to interface is accountable for the common deficiency of plain concrete. The deficiency can be removed by joining of fibers in the mix. Assorted sorts of strands, for instance, those used as a piece of customary composite materials have been familiar into the strong mix with increase its strength, or ability to restrict break improvement. In this way one may state that the Fiber braced strong pavements are more capable than standard bond strong black-top. “FRC is described as composite material including concrete invigorated with discrete discretionarily yet reliably scattered short length strands.” .FRC is believed to be a material of upgraded properties and not as braced security concrete while bolster is obliged neighborhood strengthening of bond in strain district. Strands generally used as a piece of bond strong black-tops are steel fibers and characteristic polymer fibers, for instance, polyester and polypropylene.

- Copper Ore Tailings
HCL presently delivers around 3 million tons of Copper Ore per annum from its open pit mine at MCP and underground mine at KCC. Out of this, around 2 million tones is delivered at MCP and around 1 million tons is created at KCC. Copper Ore having around 1% copper content is subjected to mineral beneficiation process (including pounding, crushing, floatation, thickening and filtration) to deliver Copper Concentrate, having around 25% copper content at MCP, and around 17% copper content at KCC.
In the beneficiation procedure, just 5 to 7% of metal amount reports to focus and adjust 93 to 95% of the mineral are disposed of as Tailings. The Copper Ore Tailings (COT), which are forgotten material in the wake of extricating copper from the metals, are put away in following darns developed at both MCP and KCC. Over some stretch of time, tremendous amount of COT has cumulated at both MCP and KCC.

- Workability Test
5.1.0 Slump Cone Test
Test was done for deciding the workability of cement. The technique for testing was done according to IS 1199-1959. Steel packing pole of 16 mm in width, 0.6 m long and adjusted toward one side was taken. The inward surface of the shape was altogether cleaned and free from dampness and any set cement before starting the test. The shape is set on a smooth, even, inflexible and non-retentive surface (leveled metal plate). The form was held immovably while concrete is filled. The form was filled in four layers, each roughly one-fourth of the stature of the shape. Each layer was packed with twenty-five strokes of the adjusted end of the packing bar. The strokes were dispersed in a uniform way finished the cross-segment of the shape and in the second and ensuing layers. After the best layer is packed, abundance concrete was hit off and leveled with a trowel. The mortar spilled out between the shape and the base plate was cleaned. Presently the shape is expelled from the solid quickly by raising it gradually and precisely in a vertical heading. Droop was estimated (in mm) promptly by deciding the contrast between the tallness of the form and that of the most noteworthy of the solid example being tried. The activities were done at a place free from vibration or stun, and inside a time of two minutes in the wake of testing.

MIX DESIGN OF M20 CONCRETE
The target of any blend proportioning strategy is to decide a suitable and practical mix of solid constituents that can be utilized for a first trial group to create a solid that is near what can accomplish a decent harmony between the different wanted properties of the solid at the most reduced conceivable cost. The genuine cost of cement is identified with the cost of materials required for delivering a base mean quality called trademark quality that is determined by the planner of the structure. It will dependably be hard to build up a hypothetical blend plan technique that can be utilized all around with any mix of Portland bond, supplementary cementations materials, any totals and any admixture in light of the fact that regardless of the way that every one of the segments of a solid must satisfy some institutionalized acknowledgment criteria, these criteria are excessively wide additionally, to a specific degree similar properties of crisp and solidified cement can be accomplished in various routes from similar materials. This circumstance must be seen as leeway; in light of the fact that in two unique areas a similar solid properties ‘can be accomplished contrastingly utilizing non-costly locally accessible materials. A blend proportioning technique just gives a beginning blend plan that should be pretty much changed to meet the coveted solid attributes. Regardless of the way that blend proportioning is as yet something of a craftsmanship, it is obvious that some fundamental logical standards can be utilized as a base for blend computations.
6.1 Mix Proportions
Configuration blend concrete is wanted to ostensible blend. Blend is planned after the stipulations set down in IS 456:2000 as for least bond content, most extreme water bond proportion and least grade of cement for different introduction conditions and rules. Blend is composed according to IS 10262:2009 – BIS technique for Mix Design.
6.1.1 Mix Design – Specimen Calculation (as per IS: 10262-2009)
Design Stipulations for Mix Proportioning
a. Grade designation — M20
b. Type of cement – OPC 43 grade, IS 8112
c. Max. Nominal size of aggregate – 20 mm
d. Minimum cement content – 320 kg/m3
e. Maximum water cement ratio – 0.55
f. Workability – 110 mm slump
g. Exposure condition — Severe (for reinforced concrete)
h. Degree of supervision — Good
i. Maximum cement content – 450 kg/m3
Step 1: Target Strength of mix proportioning
fdz= fck+ 1.65 S
Where, fck= target average compressive strength at 28 days
fck= characteristic compressive strength at 28 days
S = standard deviation =5 N/min2
Therefore target Mean strength = 20+1.65 x5 = 28.25 N/mm2
Step 2: Selection of W/ C Ratio
From Table 5 of IS 456:2000, maximum water cement ratio = 0.55 (Severe exposure)
Adopting water cement ratio of 0.48
0.48< 0.55, hence ok
Step 3: Selection of water content
From Table 4.6, IS 456:2000 maximum water content = 186 kg (for 25 to 50 mm slump range) for 20 mm aggregate.
Estimated water content for 75 mm slump = 186 + 3/100 x186 = 191.58 It.
Step 4: Calculation of cement content
Water cement ratio = 0.48 Cement content = 192/0.48= 400 kg/m3>320 kg/m3(minimum cement content)
Step 5: Proportion of volume of coarse aggregate and fine aggregate content
From Table 4.2 weight of coarse aggregate corresponding to 20 mm size aggregate and fine aggregate (Zone II) for water-cement ratio of 0.50=0.62 As the water-cement ratio is lowered by 0.05, the proportion of volume of coarse aggregate is increased by 0.01 (at the rate of – / + 0.01 for every + 0.05 change in water-cement ratio).Therefore, corrected proportion of volume of coarse aggregate for Water-cement ratio of 0.48= 0.62
Step 6: Mix calculations
The mix calculations per unit volume of concrete shall be as follows
a) Volume of concrete =1 m’
b) Volume of cement = (mass of cement/sp.gr. of cement) x (1/1000)
= (400/3.10) x (1/1000)
= 0.129 m3
c) Volume of water = (191.58/1) x (1/1000)
= 0.1915 m3
e) Volume of all aggregates = [a – (b + c + d)]
= 1- (0.129+ 0.1915)
