Abstract

This paper reveals comparative experimental investigation of brick made up of desert sand and metakaoline with brick made up of fly ash and Portland cement. Desert sand and metakaoline is added in various proportions to prepare the brick, the weight of desert sand and metakaoline is in percentage of weight of brick. Both desert sand brick and fly ash brick are made by applying compressive force on raw material by hydraulic compression machine. To examine physical properties of desert sand, sieve analysis and Pycnometer test are performed, for properties of cement and metakaoline, Fineness, Standard consistency, Initial and final setting time, Soundness, Compressive strength, for Crushed Stone. Moreover, physical properties of desert sand brick are examined for dimension tolerance and density of desert sand brick. The result showed sustainable improvement in the hardness of desert sand brick over fly ash brick. The present study shows improvement in the characteristics of brick made up of desert sand and metakaoline in comparison with fly ash brick.

Keyphrases: compressive strength, Desert Sand Brick, Fly ash brick, Metakaoline
