INTRODUCTION Concrete is world's most widely used construction material. ... using coconut shell as partial replacement of coarse aggregate in concrete and ...
It also paved the way to the recognition of using coconut shells and fiber as substitute for aggregates in developing concrete hollow blocks. This paper presents the result on the workability and compressive strength of concrete containing various percentage of coconut shell content as partial aggregate …
The coconut shell is more resistant to acidic, salty and alkaline attack. The characteristic properties of concrete such as compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength, impact resistance, bond strength using the mix made by replacing coarse aggregates with coconut shell were reviewed in …
concern. To make use of alternative aggregate in concrete which is coconut shell has never been a common practice among the people, particularly in areas where light weight concrete is required for non load bearing walls and non structural floors. Concrete obtained using coconut shell as a coarse
aggregate with coconut shell to produce lightweight concrete. Coconut shell exhibits more resistance against crushing, impact and abrasion, compared to crushed granite aggregate. Coconut shell can be grouped under lightweight aggregate. There is no need to treat the coconut shell before use as an aggregate except for water absorption.

CS aggregate and granite aggregates are illustrated in Fig. .Lightweight Concrete Using Coconut Shells as Aggregate granite aggregates are shown in Table 1.2001). and 28 days.F. For lightweight concrete. and (ii) the compressive strength of lightweight aggregate concrete is not only influenced by the strength of the mortar but also by the ...
In this study, coconut shell is used as light weight aggregate in concrete. The properties of coconut shell and coconut shell aggregate concrete is examined and the use of coconut shell aggregate in construction is tested. Moisture content and water absorption were 4.20% and 24% respectively and these values are more
Use of coconut shell aggregate concrete as structural lightweight concrete is recommended. Coconut shell aggregate is a potential construction material and simultaneously reduces the environmental problem of solid waste and is readily available at a lower cost than normal
concrete. Also, using the coconut shell as aggregate in concrete can reduce the material cost in construction because of the low cost and abundant agricultural waste. Coconut Shell Concrete can be used in rural areas and places where coconut is abundant and may also be used where the conventional aggregates are costly.
The coconut shell aims to prepare light weight concrete which may reduce considerably the self-load of a structure and permits large precast units to be handled. The coconut shell is more resistant to acidic, salty and alkaline attack.

REVIEW OF LITERATURES Agricultural By-product, Coconut shell, Light Weight concrete The literatures regarding the potential uses of coconut shell as one of the suitable aggregates for concrete have been reviewed and are I. INTRODUCTION presented below.
A comparative study of concrete properties using coconut shell and palm kernel shell as coarse aggregates. ... testing and sieve test of lightweight aggregates for concrete. ... A comparative study of concrete properties using CS and PKS as coarse aggregates has been carried out. Generally the compressive strength of the concrete decreased as ...
The coarse aggregates are the main ingredients of concrete. In this study, coconut shell is used as lightweight aggregate in concrete. The properties of coconut shell and coconut shell aggregate concrete is examined and the use of coconut shell aggregate in construction is tested. Coconut shell exhibits more resistance against crushing compared to
The possibility exists for the partial replacement of coarse aggregate with coconut shell to produce lightweight concrete. Coconut shell exhibits more resistance against crushing, impact and abrasion, compared to crushed granite aggregate. Coconut shell can be grouped under lightweight aggregate.
there is no need to treat the coconut shell before use as an aggregate and Coconut shell has potential as light weight aggregate in concrete. Also, using the coconut shell as aggregate in concrete can reduce the material cost in construction. Because of low cost &its availability. S A Kakade et al. (2015) Says that the presence of sugar

research, compared concrete made with coconut shells and palm kernel shells as replacement for coarse aggregates and concluded that coconut shells performed better than palm kernel shells as replacement for conventional aggregates in the of concrete. Osayemwen (1992) …
Concrete obtained using coconut shell as a coarse aggregate satisfies the minimum requirements of concrete. Coconut shell aggregate resulted acceptable strength which is required for structural concrete. Coconut shell may present itself as a potential material in the field of construction industries.
