Abstract

The construction sector could provide solutions for the safe utilization of industrial by-products as construction materials, if proper characterization and control of the materials properties is undertaken. Under this consideration, fines produced from marble cutting and fines produced from concrete truck washing were investigated as fine material for use in cement mortars. Both these by-products are produced in large amounts in the form of sludge. Marble Sludge Fines (MSF) and Cement Sludge Fines (CSF) were characterized in terms of fineness, density, chemical analysis and suitability for use with cement. Mortars with variable rate (10%, 20% and 30%) of cement substitution with MSF or CSF were tested and compared to a reference cement mortar in respect to their fresh and hardened properties. Packing ability and viscosity were measured in fresh mortars, while strength development, water absorption and porosity were measured in hardened mortars. The results confirm the suitability of both as filler material; although MSF performed better regarding fresh mortar properties and CSF showed better results regarding strength development.
