Abstract :

The most basic building material for construction of houses is the conventional brick. The rapid growth in today’s construction industry has obliged the civil engineers in searching for more efficient and durable alternatives far beyond the limitations of the conventional brick production. By incorporating Kota stone powder in Marble brick, compressive strength can be improved. Reduces the construction cost, maintenance cost. Also reduce the temperature up to 40 C. Since marble and Kota stone consist of silica and lime, the strength of Kota stone powder brick is relatively more as compare to marble powder brick. The Marble powder has been replaced by Kota stone powder accordingly in the range of 20%, 40%, 60% and 80% by weight. The waste generated from the industries cause environmental problems. Hence the reuse of this waste material can be emphasized. To produce low cost brick, to reduce disposal and pollution problems due to the use of waste.
