Oyster shell is produced by shucking process in oyster farming in southern coast of Korea. In average, about 6.7kg of oyster shell is produced as an industrial waste for 1kg of oyster flesh, and even only in last year, it is estimated that about 150,000 ton of oyster shell is produced. Oyster shell is light weighted and its strength characteristic is similar to sand. So we produced mortar test piece using grounded oyster shell powder under 0.6mm, 0.6~1.2mm, 1.2~2.5mm, 2.5~5.0mm of its particle size according to fine aggregate standard and reviewed strength Properties.
