Abstract
Heritage waste (HW) or the waste produced from heritage buildings has a key concern these days. HW a
heterogeneous mixture of buildings generated from the removal of existing structures either by manmade
process or by natural disasters such as earthquake, flood, hurricanes etc. As per records the quantities of
demolition wastes 1.3-1.6 tons/m2 has been produced by residential buildings, 1.5-2.0 tons/m2 generated
through industrial structures and 1.0-2.0 tons/m2 have been produced in general. Clay has the primary raw
material of the conventional brick, which obtains from the top soil of the earth’s surface. However, due to
the fast production of bricks, the fertile top soil has being diminished and thus reduces the availability of
agricultural land. In the manufacturing of bricks the harmful Co2 gas has emitted which causing
environmental pollution. Hence, the conventional bricks are not considered environment-friendly. Therefore,
it has been important to find out a better alternative for conventional bricks, which can be less harmful to the
environment and can utilize the waste obtained from various sources. Fly ash hollow blocks have proven to
be good alternative and gained much popularity these days. Present experimental work has analyzing the
effect of Heritage waste with hair fiber on mechanical properties of fly ash. The Heritage waste was mixed
from 0 to 20 % by weight of fly ash and hair fiber was mixed in fractions of 0.00, 1.00, 1.50, 2.00 & 2.50%
respectively. Portland cement production has under critical review due to high amount of carbon dioxide gas
release threatening the atmosphere; therefore, the studies are being conducted to minimize its usage. A
number of studies have been carried out to determine the effect on the Physical properties of soil and fly ash
with and without fibre. However, very few studies have been conducted to investigate the effect of hair fiber
on mechanical properties of fly ash based Hollow blocks.

Key words: Heritage waste, Fly ash, Hair Fiber; Compressive, OMC & MDD Test
