A Study on Properties and Effects of Copper Slag in Concrete
Some of the industrial byproducts have been used in the construction industry for the production of
concrete. Copper slag is one of the materials that is considered as a waste material which could have been used in
construction industry as partial replacement of either cement or aggregates. For this research work, M30 grade concrete was
used and the tests were conducted for variousproportions of copper slag replacement with sand of 0%, to100 % in concrete.
The obtained results were compared with those of control concrete made with ordinary Portland cement and sand.
