Strength and Absorption Properties of Cement Mortar Produced with Various Content of Sludge Powder at Mines ;;;;;
It is reported that a lot of sludge powder is produced during the process of manufacturing crushed fine aggregate in mines. However, there is a limitation on the its use that most of them are disposed and wasted, which cause environmental pollution. Therefore, in this paper, tests are carried out in order to recycle sludge powder as filler for cement mortar products. Kinds of aggregates and mix proportion of mortar are varied under various contents of sludge powder. According to test results, it is found that cement mortar products using sludge powder as substitution of fine aggregate about 10% have better qualities than those without sludge powder.
