Influence of Wood Additions in Concrete to Improve Compressive Strength and Compared with M20 Grade of Concrete

Laksmipurapu Sai Ram Phani Kesari and Samuel Simron Rajkumar

Abstract

The project was to determine the compressive strength of different concrete samples containing wood particles and compared conventional (M20) grade concrete. The ingredients used in modified concrete are cement, fine aggregate, 20 mm coarse aggregate, water, and novel wood waste ash. Two sets of groups were defined with eighteen specimens prepared for each group. The G-power value was taken as 80%, alpha 0.05 and confidence interval (CI) as 95%. The impact of novel wood waste ash in concrete can be determined by the concrete’s compressive strength, which will be compared to conventional concrete with a 30% wood waste ash replacement in cement. Based on the one-way ANOVA (Analysis of variance) using SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) software, the compressive strength of conventional concrete is 22.97 N/mm2. The compressive strength of novel E-waste concrete is 29.41 N/mm2. There is a significant difference between the two groups and the significance value of 0.000 (p < 0.05) and also mean, standard deviations standard errors are (22.9711, 29.4089), (0.26610, 0.43490), and (0.06272, 0.10251) respectively. The effectiveness of the 30% wood waste ash addition to the concrete will be evaluated, and further investigation will be done on the 28.04% increase in wood waste ash percentage.
