Mangalore Tile Waste as Coarse Aggregate in Concrete


Tile Waste As Coarse Aggregate In Concrete potential of using the broken clay tiles in concrete as an aggregate is studied in this  study. A green approach is to use waste material in construction. Today, alternative materials to replace constituent concrete materials are a hot research topic. It provides added value to the waste materials and helps to achieve sustainability goals in construction. Manglore pattern clayRoof tiles were used for roof construction in most of Kerala’s old buildings.

In the construction and demolition (C&D) waste generated during the renovation and reconstruction work of these old buildings, large amounts of broken roof tile chips are available. It is therefore important to identify a method for the use of broken clay chips. In this study, the potential of using these broken clay tile chips as coarse aggregate is studied inconcrete production.

The use of concrete FS provides some advantages for related industries. In our project we used Iron ore dust(slag) as a fine aggregate with complete sand replacement. Use of Iron ore dust in concrete M as an alternative to normal aggregates.


Clay tile chips can be used in concrete as a satisfactory aggregate to obtain good quality concrete and give strength. Replacing crushed stone aggregate (CSA) with clay tile chip aggregate (TCA) yielded a 7th day compressive strength of up to 14.2 N / mm2.

The mix design procedure using tile aggregate may be developed in the future. Test data is expected to be useful in formulating code provisions to allow the use of tile aggregate. For a cement content of 368.58 kg / m3, the compressive strength of M20 concrete with Mangalore tiles as coarse aggregate was optimal with a value of 18.49 N / mm2. The mix designs did not achieve target strength in both the M20 and M15 mix.
