MICROSTRUCTURAL STUDY ON THE CONCRETE CONTAINING MANUFACTURED SAND

B.VIJAYA.

Abstract
The present study focuses on evaluating the micro structural characteristics of medium strength concrete, in which manufactured sand (M-sand) is used as a partial and full substitution for natural sand. This paper presents a scanning electron microscopy (SEM) study performed on the medium strength concrete containing manufactured sand. SEM images of manufactured sand shows that the surface is rough and the particles are elongated and angular in nature. From the SEM observation, it was noticed that manufactured sand has more micro roughness and has more angular particles in comparison with river sand. This elongated angular particles of manufactured sand creates better interlocking between the particles and thereby reduces the porosity. Due to better interlocking between the particles, the strength and durability characteristics of manufactured sand in concrete is enhanced in comparison to river sand.

Key words: River sand, Manufactured sand, SEM analysis.
