Paper Title:

A Comparative Analysis between Conventional and Non-Conventional Stabilizers

Abstract:  The main objectives of the soil stabilization are to increase the bearing capacity of the soil, weathering resistance and to enhance different properties of soil so as to make it more efficient. Unstable soils can create many problems such as in foundation and weak superstructure. Therefore it is necessary to stabilize the soil techniques to ensure the good stability and bearing capacity of soil and it can sustain more loads. According to times of India in our country 32000 million ton industrial waste is generated annually in which the ratio of fly ash and rice husk is 0.82%(265 million tons) and 0.41%(132 million tons) and out of that only 50 to 60% of these are utilized. Waste materials such Fly Ash, rice husk ash, pond ash may use to make the soil to be stable.  Addition of such materials will increase the physical as well as chemical properties of the soil and also that is how we can more practically utilize these industrial wastes. Some properties which are expected to be improved are shear strength, unconfined compressive strength and bearing capacity etc. California bearing ratio (CBR) and other strength property tests were conducted on soil. By using waste material it reduces the cost of construction or we can say economical. The main problem with waste is their disposal so by using this we try to decrease their hazardous effect on environment. These materials show great results and can be useful in this sector as well also the results shows that they are not only the substitute of the conventional stabilizers but also they can be superior to them in some aspects.

Paper Title:

A Laboratory Investigation and Performance Evaluation of Soil Samples in Earthen Roads 

Abstract:  Starting from the base, soil is one of nature’s most abundant construction materials. Almost all type of construction is built with or upon the soil. The most essential piece of street asphalt is subgrade soil and its quality. On the off chance that quality of soil is poor, then adjustment is typically required. Subgrade is at times balanced out or supplanted with more grounded soil material in order to enhance the quality. Such adjustment is likewise reasonable when the accessible subgrade is comprised of frail soil. Increment in sub level quality may prompt economy in the basic thicknesses of asphalt. Cement, fly ash, lime, fibers etc. are very commonly used for soil stabilization. The main objective of this experimental study is to improve the properties of the earth soil by adding bitumen emulsion. So the improvement of soil can be used to construction of earth roads. The underlying quality of the dirt is controlled by directing soil tests such as sieve analysis, plastic limit, liquid limit, shrinkage limit, modified proctor compaction test.

Paper Title:

A Review on the Use of Plastic in Road Construction Material: Towards Solid Waste Minimization

Abstract: Plastic is user friendly but not eco- friendly as they are non-biodegradable. Plastic plays a very important role if we take as a positive source but also harmful for us if we can’t use it properly. The plastic use increasing as wrapping, packing, carry bags etc… As a result amount of waste plastic also increasing day by day. Plastic is a non-biodegradable substance in nature. This leads to various adverse effects on humans, animals and environment. In Jaipur the generation of waste is 1340 MT/day per capita. To reduce the amount of waste and its hazardous impact on nature we are using 10% plastic in construction of flexible road pavement. Plastic polythene, packing wrapper, toys and other processed plastic can be used as a coating over aggregate and this coated aggregate can be used for pavement construction.  The amount of plastic to be added is around 10 per cent .Cost of construction material considerably reduced. Various properties of this plastic coated aggregate improve such as abrasion resistance, impact value, water absorption, stability etc. The main objective of this research is to find out concentration of waste plastic in flexible pavement

Paper Title:

Acidity Effects on Redstone (Sandstone)

Abstract:  Deterioration of stone specimen like sandstone caused by simulated acid rain was investigated by the laboratory tests. Before and after red stone specimens were exposed to simulated acid rain. The difference between the mass of the stone samples kept under the influence of the acid of different pH are observed and calculated. The changes in the surface characteristics of the stone after they are dipped in the acid for certain amount of time. The impact of acid deposition on stone monuments made of marble and limestone [1] and on building materials containing large amounts of carbonate has been recognized for over a century and an acid precipitation with a pH level ranging between 3.0 and 5.0 will affect carbonate stones like sandstone. It has been found that acid rain causes chemical deterioration on red stone. The surface of stones contributes to salt enrichment on carbonate stones [2] and plays a major role in the deposition of acid substances on buildings. [3]Acids chosen for the test are the two most effective acids i.e. H2SO4, HCl. Acid dilutions were made by first creating the acid of .01N. The major observation is taken between the numbers of days to the reduction in the mass. The results are then compared to the virgin sample of the stone.

Paper Title:

Affinity of Bitumen with Recycled Aggregate Extracted from RAP

Abstract: The researches have targeted to get an approach for effective recycling of Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) materials. Some researchers have considered that the loss of binding property of asphalt is responsible for the poor performance of rehabilitated pavements whereas some suggested the loss of surface property of aggregate is also responsible for poor performance of the pavement constructed by RAP. The affinity of bitumen and aggregates is one of the most important property influencing the recyclability of RAP collected from the demolished. The affinity of bitumen and aggregate gives indirect idea of stripping resistance property and durability of the recycled RAP into the pavement. The test EN 12697-11 (rolling bottles) is used to evaluate the affinity of bitumen and aggregates. This research has targeted to study the binding behavior of aggregate surface with the fresh bitumen binder by comparing fresh and reused aggregates performances.

An Integrated Approach to Analyse the Change in Land Pattern of Sitapura and Sanganer, Jaipur

Abstract:  Changes in land use/land cover (LULC) is a dynamic process taking place on the surface, and the spatial distribution of the changes that have taken place over a period of time and space is of immense importance in many natural resources studies. LULC mapping serve as a basic inventory of land resources throughout the world. This study has demonstrated that the recent progression in remote sensing and GIS technologies allows powerful tool for mapping and detecting changes in LULC. Sitapura and sanganer are served as the industrial area and large production of Jaipur comes out from these two places. These two are backbone of Jaipur and referred as the industrial hub. The main objective of this research is to find out land use change based factors responsible for deterioration of land of sitapura and sanganer. In this study, available temporal satellite data of Jaipur is used to produce LULC map of the sitapura industrial area and sanganer for year 2000 to 2009. Settlement expansion and illegal logging are also the major factors behind the LULC changes observed in the area. Land use change indicates that built area is increased drastically while agriculture and vegetation land decreased from year 2000-2009.  Build up and open field increased from 18.64% to 33.57%, 39.80% to 43.14%, respectively. On the other hand agricultural and vegetation land decreased from 21.77% to 12.05%, 19.29% to 10.11%, respectively. The findings of this study highlight the need for a comprehensive assessment of human activities in these industrial area.

An Integrated Study on Feasibility of Permeable Concrete Pavement

Abstract:   being a prime constituent of any construction material, concrete is widely used. So, development of concrete has a gravitate curiosity of many people. One of the special type of concrete and our prime area of interest is “Permeable Concrete”. It is a concrete having high void content of about 30%. In the world, full of concrete with lots of environmental & other problems Permeable Concrete can act as a savior. Permeable Concrete is considered as an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as it provides suitable development, pollution control and storm water management etc. In different platforms, such as parking areas and footpath, Permeable Concrete transfers the water to underground surface very easily & helps in maintenance of ground water table. With the help of TiO2 this concrete can also work as pollution absorbent for air pollution caused due to vehicles and help in pollution control of air, water and noise. Thus, exploration in permeable concrete leads to conquering many hurdles & lead us to sustainable development which is a future need.

Analysis of Concrete Properties by Recycled Plastic Bounded Concretes (RPBCs)

Abstract: In this paper Polypropylene (PP) granules used as replacement for fine as well as coarse aggregates for producing concrete cubes and cylinders has been investigated and reported. PP based concrete cubes and cylinders were cast manually and the strength of the test concrete in terms of compression and split tension were experimentally evaluated. It is found that the strength of plastic replaced concrete in terms of compression and split tension can be comparable with the conventional concrete. The present study is aimed at concrete mix with partial replacement of coarse aggregate (1%, 2%, 3%) and fine aggregates (10%, 15%, 20%) by PP granules that will provide an advantage in reducing the dead weight of structure. This mix in the form of cubes and cylinders were subjected to compression and split tension to ascertain the strength parameter. Hence the use of plastic granules in concrete making is not only beneficial but also helpful in disposal of plastic wastes.

Assessment of Travel Behaviour for Jaipur Metro using Revealed Preference Survey

Abstract:  Infrastructure, specifically Transportation considered as the major factor for the continuous development of any country and its economy. The cities around the world are facing major problems due to improper planning and non -implementation of modern transportation techniques. Metro being Low Carbon Transport, it is considered as an Economic solution to reduce pollution in the city. Jaipur metro is designed keeping in mind the comfort of the passengers and the traffic on   the road. In this paper survey was conducted on 9 metro stations starting from mansarovar to chandpol. This survey includes various factors like purpose of trip, mode of travel, Reason for Preference and waiting time of other mode of Travel than metro, etc. The results provide us the response of citizens of Jaipur on the present scenario of the metro and the problems facing by them to travel to the metro. The results shows that comfort and reduction in travel time are the main considerations in preferring metro rail but due to the networking and fare problems they do not likely to travel in the Jaipur metro. It is seen from the analysis that this survey requires immediate attention for the implementation of the metro rail system before it becomes too late

Analysis of Accidental Studies Gopalpura Jaipur

Abstract: India is a developing country, with the rise in development & technology there has been significant increase in the population. With these increments there has been tremendous increase in the vehicle population, thus leading to denser traffic flow and hours of traffic jams. In order to make those traffics jams free it is essential to survey the traffic flow, hence traffic flow study is an essential part  to determine the smooth traffic flow. By doing such traffic flow study one can not only determine the density of  the flow & can also determine & analyze the current road network & can develop new methods  for the better amendments of the road thus making it better  in terms of  lives & time saving. This also reduces the no. of accidents as the environment of roads is healthy for running. Generally accidents occur at intersection where low traffic volume mixes with high speed traffic & also due to asymmetry of roads & uneven intersections. In this paper the traffic survey is done in the area of Gopalpura (Jaipur). Since the traffic is heterogeneous so the survey has been done by converting different types of vehicles into equivalent passenger car & expressing the volume in terms of Passenger Car Unit (PCU) per hour. The vehicles of highly heterogeneous traffic with widely varying physical and operational characteristics such as the one prevailing on Indian roads, based on occupancy, any convenient lateral position on the road without any lane discipline. The PCU estimates, made through microscopic simulation, for a wide range of traffic volume and roadway conditions indicate that the PCU value of a vehicle significantly changes with change in traffic volume and width of roadway.

Assessment of Street Encroachment through Vehicle Parking in Residential Area of Jaipur

Abstract: This paper evaluates the parking encroachment by local resident along the roads in front of their houses. These encroachments create the congestion on the road and also affect the free flow of vehicles in the street. .To find the encroachment a survey has been conducted A, D and E block of Nirman Nagar Jaipur. These blocks are densely populated and also comprising of some shopping centers. Main objective is to find the reasons behind parking on streets instead of parking available in their residence. Result shows that due to only one parking in their houses, local residents are parking in front of their house. Another finding shows that due to unavailability of paid parking in their block, residents have to park in front of their house.

Cleaner Transportation

Abstract:  Development in the technologies and new trends in transportation has developed out the overall transportation system and the Gross Domestic Value (GDP) of the country. But with faster development of such trends the environment had a devastating effect on its quality and parameters cleaner transportation is a new of approaching out the development of the transportation system. Cleaner transportation deals out with the factor that may lead to a country development in a manner that will have a less impact on the environment conditions prevailing out in a country. Cleaner transportation basically deals in three phase (3- phase) way of approaching out the transportation system i.e. improving out the characteristics of vehicle and transportation management. Cleaner transportation also includes out various different ways of approaching out the transportation system. In this paper we have shown out the various methods that have been prevailing out in the country basically the recent development trends in country which have proven out to reduce the impact of vehicle on environment to some extent. Odd- Even in Delhi is the best example of such development which maintain out the air quality in the Delhi city. Car Pooling and E-rickshaw are also the different methods of such development. In cleaner transportation we have also shown the basic methods and technologies which can be implemented down in the system of transportation for improving down the quality of transportation and making down it cleaner and sustainable vehicle can be easily adoptable to the society catalytic converters and carbon resonators are the same technologies which can be further adopted down in the society and make it extent for larger use. These technologies may reduce the quality of resultant generated and make the quality of air better and make better environment.

Effect of Blending Epoxy Resin with High Asphaltene Concentrated Bitumen

Abstract: This paper focuses to manufacture a high quality bitumen binder of aggregate as the pavement material. High asphaltene concentrated bitumen is prepared by mixing asphaltene powder into the bitumen of penetration grade 80/100 and variations in viscosity as function asphaltene content and resin additive concentration were determined. The effects of the epoxy additive were examined by Brookfield Viscometer, penetrometer, Ball Ring softening point, RTFOT (rolling thin film oven test). The optimum requirement of the epoxy resin for modification of the bitumen is found to be varying from 2% to 5% (w/w) on the basis of yield viscosity, penetration, and softening point. The potential result of blending of additives are minimizing rutting, solving problem of stripping and enhancing properties of fatigue life.

Effect of Glass Fiber on Ordinary Reinforcement Cement Concrete

Abstract:  Concrete is a tension fragile construction material, which is often crack obsessed connected to plastic and tougher states, drying shrinkage, and the like. Moreover, concrete suffers from very low tensile strength, very less ductility and little resistance to cracking. to improve these value of these properties, many attempt has been made to study the effects of addition of glass fibers in Reinforced cement concrete. In the current practical research glass fibers in different percentage 0 to 0.1% has been studied for the effects on mechanical properties of concrete by carrying compressive strength test, splitting tensile strength test and flexural strength test. As concrete is frail in tension and has snapped characteristics. The theory of using fibers in concrete to improve the characteristics of construction materials is not new. Continuous use of  reinforcement in concrete also increases the ductility and strength, but requires careful placement and labor skills. Alternative introduction to fibers in discrete form in reinforced concrete may provide better solution. When concrete fails randomly respective fibers start working, arrest cracks formation and propagation, and thus improve strength and ductility. As India is one of the largest producers of glass, hence its potential application in many branches of engineering should be developed. In the present work the tensile, compressive, mechanical properties of glass fiber without modification and after modification with 0.5% alkali and 0.5% latex polymer has been modified by taking quantity of glass as 1%  and 2% of cement. This modification of glass fiber improves tensile strength of glass fiber also water absorption has been reduced. These properties are compared by taking tests on plain, concrete.

Effective Utilization of Plastic Waste in Bitumen Pavement

Abstract: In the present scenario modernization is increasing with very large rate. This modernization leading toward development of country but in another side it also produces some harmful ingredient for environment. These ingredients are harmful for environment at time of production and also at the time of disposal. This harmful ingredient mainly including plastic waste. In current scenario, in this rapidly changing world use of plastic is increases at a higher rate. In our day to day life we are using  huge amount   of plastic in form of poly bags , packing bags , language carrying  bags , plastic bottles , plastic  glass and in any other form. These all type of plastic waste are leading to disposal in environment or water body, burnt and dispose to agricultural land. These all method of disposal that we are using harmful to environment .So that now it is demand of time to introduce a safer method than later one of disposal of these plastic waste. It is leading plastic waste toward an eco-friendly and economic use in bitumen pavement. In pavement bitumen is use as binding material and plastic also behave as a binding material with some limitation. By replacing some amount of bitumen up to a limit then it increase some engineering property of bitumen. So it will be both environment friendly and economic solution of using plastic waste. By replacing bitumen up to 10%-12% then it will make effective main engineering property. it decrease the penetration value , increase softening point ,increase flash and fire point and also increase stripping value , these are all in favour of good pavement .

Encroachment Evaluation in Ecozones of Jaipur using Geospatial Technology

Abstract:  In the last 30 years, India had witnessed a radical transformation of urban scene. In particular, during this period, the million plus cities began to grow rapidly. With the increase in urban population, encroachment is very common in developing city. Encroachment is taking place in the form of built up and agriculture in Jaipur city especially along the sewer. This sewer is a natural sewer, known as Amanishah Nallah which was earlier Dravyawati River. This paper evaluated encroachment on land use in the form of agriculture and settlement in the Eco zones of Jaipur City. Remote sensing, GPS and GIS have been used to extract the information related to land use change and its spatial and temporal variation. In the present study, change is assessed using satellite data 2008 and 2011 of Jaipur city. The GPS survey is conducted to find out the current scenario of development and changes in land use in the Eco zones of Jaipur city with special emphasis on sewer. This survey indicated that there is enormous change found in field survey and most of the encroachment took place around the sewer by cultivated as well as by settlement.

Paper Title:

Enhancement of Concrete Properties by using Silica Fume and Fly Ash as an Additive

Abstract: This paper investigates the potential of using design of experiments and neural networks to determine the effect of silica fume and fly ash replacements, from 0 to 10% on early and late compressive, shear and tensile strength from 7 to 28 days, of high-strength concrete, at water-cementations material ratios in the range of 0.0–0.5. The research reported in this paper shows the following conclusions. Using a simplex-centroid mixture experiment design, a much smaller number of experiments need to be performed to obtain meaningful data. Analyses of variance to test the effects of the variables and their interactions on concrete strength can be performed. The strength ratio, i.e., the percentage of strength of concrete containing fly ash and silica-fume to strength of concrete without fly ash and silica fume (pure-cement concrete) based on the same w/b and the same age, is significantly reduced as the fly ash and silica fume replacement increases, is somewhat reduced as the water-binder ratio decreases, and is highly significantly reduced as the age decreases. The higher fly ash content mixes yielded lower strength ratios throughout, the difference being greater at early age and low water-binder ratio. The higher silica fume content mixes higher strength ratio throughout.

Enhancement of the Properties of Black Cotton Soil by using Rice Husk and Lime

Abstract:  If the soil is homogeneous and the base of the foundation is flexible, the pressure distribution among the foundation will be uniform and the structure would be stable. If the stability of the soil is not adequate, it causes the structure failure. The black cotton soil covers a huge land mass on earth. In Rajasthan, the black cotton soil is found in the districts of Baran, Bundi, Jhalawar, and Kota. In India, it covers 51.8 million hect. of land. The black cotton soil has swelling and shrinking properties due to the presence of Montmorillonite mineral and therefore it is not used in engineering construction. The stabilization of expansive soil is done by the agricultural waste rice husk and one of the most important binding material limes. The various percentages of rice husk and lime is blended in the black cotton soil. The results enlighten the various geotechnical properties such as CBR, Plastic limit, liquid limit, specific gravity etc. of the mixture of black cotton soil, rice husk and hydrated lime so that it can be used in various engineering construction and also for the stability of various structures.

Enhancing the Strength of Concrete by Partially Replacing Coarse Aggregate with E-Waste

Abstract: Electronic Waste is the very big problem in today’s world in the category of solid waste. Each of the living entity is affected by its adverse affects even our environment is affected by E-Waste is very difficult which results in increase in amount of solid waste & then create pollution. As a solution to its disposal, E-Waste can be reuse in concrete as coarse aggregate. In the present scenario concrete is very important material for construction purpose. We need to reduce the use of coarse aggregate so as to left it for the upcoming future generation that’s what sustainable development is all about. The coarse aggregate is replaced partially by E-Waste ranging from 0% to 10% in M20 grade mix. Compressive strength, Flexural strength, Split tensile strength for M20 grade mix is checked after partial replacement & compared with conventional concrete mix. Results shows that on 10% replacement of coarse aggregate with E-waste, there is an 8% increment in compressive strength. Even the sulphate resisting properties get improved. By utilizing the E-waste in concrete, use of coarse aggregate decreases which simultaneously results in safekeeping natural resources for future.

Evaluation of Pavement Construction Using Partial Replacement of RAP

Abstract:  Recycling of asphalt pavement is a new emerging technology in India for road construction. Till now the old deteriorated pavement is destroyed and goes for dumping in landfills thus wasting such potential material along with putting harmful impact on environment. This assumed to be waste can be recycled again for construction of new pavements and maintenance of the older ones. This technology has such huge potential that alone USA produces 100 million tons RAP annually and approximately 80% of it is used in pavement construction. Use of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) will not even result in cutting its cost but will also decrease the environmental impact by decreasing the use of virgin material as well as saving energy. This technology of construction result in equal higher performance then the virgin mix and increases the prevention against failure due to rutting and fatigue thereby decreasing the pavement thickness. Thus examining hot asphalt mixes with different proportions ranging from 10% to 50% of RAP is carried out to check the feasibility and its performance so as to be used in construction of rural and urban roads.

Generation of Synthetic series of Rainfall using Markov Process at  Udaipur Region

Abstract: The importance of rainfall is inherited in the fact that it directly affects the agriculture sector, and indirectly affects industry, domestic life and even economy of country. This metrological parameter not only varies spatially and temporally but also seasonally and annually. Hence prediction of rainfall is a complex process. Present study adopts a stochastic process to generate the variation of annual rainfall at Udaipur region in state of Rajasthan, India. Stochastic process involves statistic approach i.e. Markov chains, which predicts rainfall for short terms. Secondary rainfall data of Udaipur region for 57 years(1957-2013) has been collected. The performed statistical tests indicate that the series of the annual rainfall data is trend free. So in order to reduce the complexity of data, frequency distribution table is formed. All the parameters of this model were predicted from the historical rainfall records. Then  yearly rainfall is predicted for the year2014,2015,2016,2017. Obtained results are compared with the observed rainfall.

Geospatial Technique for Drinking Water Quality Analysis of Kota City

Abstract:  As the industrial and educational centre of India, Kota has experienced an extensive urban growth in last two decades. With this rapid urbanization, Kota city is facing the variations in availability of water in time, quantity and quality. In this paper, the spatial and temporal variations of drinking water quality were evaluated for seven parameters using geospatial technique during 2011 to 2015. The drinking water quality data was collected from Public Health Engineering Department (PHED) for various locations in and around the city during the study period. The Spatial Analyst Tool of ArcGIS software was employed for interpretation of data. The spatial distribution maps of various physico-chemical parameters such as pH, turbidity, Total dissolved solids, Total hardness, Total alkalinity; Fluoride and Nitrate were created at ward level during the study period. The spatial pattern of these different parameters indicate that most of the locations are under the permissible limit and suitable for human use.This paper indicates the potential of geospatial technique to understand the spatial pattern of drinking water quality and its management.

Impact of Metro Rail Construction Work Zone on Environment in Phase -1 Jaipur Metro

Abstract:  Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is a systematic process designed to identify and predict the potential impacts of human activity on the biophysical and human environment. It also functions as an environmental management tool to identify measures to avoid, mitigate or compensate for those effects. EIA is intended to be an iterative process to follow‐up to projects post implementation to determine actual environmental outcomes, interpret and communicate information about those outcomes and investigate opportunities for improved project environmental performance. Originating from the United States’ National Environmental Policy Act of 1970, EIA is now amongst the most successful and widely practiced environmental management tools in the world. Jaipur, the symphony in pink, is the land of superlatives, where breathtaking beauty and rich & culture blend superbly. The present situation of Jaipur city is quite alarming with lot of congestion, parking problems, accidents, air and noise pollution etc. The situation is going to be more critical in the coming year and hence a comprehensive and integrated approach to solve environment problems, management is the needed to solve the problems. The environmental problem in Jaipur city is primarily due to high growth of personalized vehicle and private owned public transport vehicles, so in that case metro will be one of the best option of mass transits system which will help in reducing accidental and environmental problems. The environmental Impact during construction of Jaipur Metro is very important issue for people residing along metro corridors. Jaipur city represent the cities of developing countries in true sense.

Imparting Strength to Damaged Structure by Covering Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Jacket

Abstract: Damaged or old structures sometime need to be repaired or reinforced to enhance its structural life and performances. There are many ways to strengthen structures. This research investigates the potential of using Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) as reinforcement to concrete beam. In this study, use of CFRP as reinforcement was explored. The CFRP reinforcement is applied in strip form, which is more economical compared to wrapping or forming it into bar shape, because it easier and uses less fiber to achieve similar performance. Samples of CFRP reinforced concrete beam were tested to failure in three  point bending test. The results obtained are compared with performance of steel reinforced concrete. From the research, we can conclude that the CFRP reinforced concrete beam give the required resistance and strength as designed, with behavior similar to those reinforced with steel bars.

Influence on the Properties of Concrete after Partially Replacing Cement by Fly ash and Coarse Aggregate by Recycled Coarse Aggregate 

Abstract:  At present situation  massive construction is take place and due to that the amount of natural and artificial  resource consume a lot. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect on the properties of concrete after partially replacing cement by FA (fly ash) and coarse aggregate by RCA (recycled coarse aggregate).FA is the supplementary material which is use to partially replacement of cement and it is produced by  combustion of coal.  Recycled coarse aggregate is the aggregate which is already used before but can be recycle again. when FA is mixed with concrete in place of OPC grade 43 cement  it increase the  strength, workability and durability of concrete.The amount of FA and RCA replacing cement and CA is in the percentage  0%,7.5%, 15% and 25% to the weight of cement and 0%,5%,10% and 40% to the total weight of CA simultaneously[2] .  The grade of concrete is M25 and various test is also perform like compressive strength test at 3 day and 7 day,compaction factor test, slump test, and workability test . Total number of specimen for cube was 8, which were casted for testing to study the influence of fly ash on concrete. All the specimen were deep cured  under normal atmospheric temperature .  On the basis of that results, by using fly ash, concrete was found to increase compressive strength and durability of concrete while adding different proportion of partially added material. When it compare to normal concrete it gives better results. Its use should be promoted for better performance and for environmental sustainability           `

Abstract:   Road pavement is an important part of transportation and play main role in the development of country. Workability and durability of road pavement is affects by design procedures, climate, materials, transport loads and construction quality. But the main factors are selected materials for road pavement structure and their properties. Structural and functional performance of a pavement is affected by aggregate properties; therefore, determining the aggregate properties is decisive. Ranges of standard tests are conducted for selection of aggregate with good specifications and long term performance. This research compares aggregate samples of four quarries situated around Jaipur (Rajasthan) according to their different physical properties. For comparison, seven standard tests (Impact value test, Crushing value test, Abrasion value test, Grain size analysis test, Elongation test, Flakiness test and Water absorption test), were conducted. The aim of this research is to evaluate high quality aggregate for workable and long- lasting flexible pavement. Test results show the comparison of four aggregate samples according to their properties and best aggregate for flexible pavement.

Multi Temporal Land Use-Land Cover Change Dynamics of Kota City, Rajasthan

Abstract: Rapid land use change has taken place in Kota city over the past two decades due to accelerated urbanization and industrialization. This study evaluates land use/land cover change dynamics and urban expansion in Kota city, Rajasthan, over a period of 27 years (1989 to 2016) using satellite remote sensing data and Geographic Information System (GIS). Spatial and temporal dynamics of land use/cover changes were quantified using Landsat images of 1989, 1999 & 2016 and Resource sat 2 LISS III (Linear Imaging Self Scanner) of 2011. Hybrid classification approach i.e. combination of supervised and unsupervised algorithm followed by visual interpretation was used to classify the land use/land cover data into various classes viz. built-up, cropland, fallow land, scattered vegetation, barren, water body, railway, road and airport. The results imply substantial growth of built-up areas in Kota cityand tremendous loss in agriculture land during the study period. Results reveal huge urban land expansion in city periphery and along the major roads or highways. This study demonstrates that integration of satellite remote sensing and GIS was an effective approach for analyzing spatial pattern of land use change. Furthermore, the outputs of this study will be useful for decision makers for sustainable urban land use planning decisions.

Physical and Chemical Properties of Different Water Samples

Abstract:  Jaipur is developing rapidly due to industrialization. It is considered being most polluted city in India due to rapidly growing industries. The present study was carried out with a view to have an understanding about the pollution status of different areas of jaipur city, particularly water quality in vicinity of Industrial area. Environmental studies were carried out on ground water to find out the physical and chemical parameters like PH, TDS, TS, Hardness, Odour, Temperature. Eight samples were collected from different sites, in order to evaluate the drinking water quality in and around jaipur city. The analysis of various parameters using standard methods and their comparison with WHO standard values, suggested that most of the parameters were within permissible limit given by Bureau of Indian standards  (BIS).  Concentration of parameters beyond the limits in some locations need to be reduced so that water could be used for the domestic purpose. The present paper accounts water quality of various sites situated in Jaipur city and their efficiencies respectively.

Paper Title:

A Study of Fibre Reinforced Concrete using Cold-Drink Cans as Steel Fibre

Abstract: In this Research paper a live study on the above mentioned title “a study of fibre reinforced concrete using Cold-drink cans as steel fibre An experimental & analytical investigation of the behaviour of concrete reinforced with steel fibres is done in this study. It is now well established that one of the important properties of steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) is its superior resistance to cracking and crack propagation. As a result of this ability to arrest cracks, fibre composites possess increased extensibility and tensile strength, both at first crack and at ultimate load and the fibres are able to hold the matrix together even after extensive cracking. In this study, effect of concrete with steel fibres has been investigated with casting of a total of 11 specimens. The specimens were tested at two different ages, at 14 and 28 days, with L/D ratio as two for cylinder (300mm height- 150mm dia.) and 150mm ×150mm × 150mm for cube. In which 6 specimens are concrete cubes which were tested in compression and 5 specimens are concrete cylinders which were tested in split tensile at 14 days and 28 days. An attempt has been made in the present investigation to study the influence of addition of cold drink-can waste material as fibres at a dosage of 0%, 0.5% and 1.0% by volume of concrete. The width and length of the waste tin fibres are 5 mm and 50 mm respectively. The properties studied include compressive and split tensile strengths. The study is conducted on M25 design concrete mix, with specimen sizes (150mm × 150mm × 150mm). These tests were carried out to evaluate the compressive strength and split tensile concrete strength .

Paper Title:

Enhancement of Concrete Properties by using Coconut Shell as Coarse Aggregates

Abstract: As we know that the cost of building construction materials is the factor of great concern. The prices of building materials are rising day by day. In this paper, the utilization of coconut shell as a coarse aggregate has been discussed based on the results obtained from comprehensive review of literature & study done by us. M 30 grade of concrete cube was casted by replacing coarse aggregate with coconut shell. Thirty cubes were casted and their compressive strength and flexural strength were evaluated at 7, 14 and 28 days. The compressive strength of concrete reduced as well as the percentage replacement increased. Concrete cubes casted by 10%, 20% replacement attained 28 days compressive strength of 34.67 N/mm2, 34.22N/mm2 respectively. But with increment in % of coconut shell the compressive strength decreases gradually. It is economical as compared to conventional concrete and also contributes to sustainable construction. The aim of this paper is to familiarize the people about the use of coconut shell as a construction material in civil engineering which will be helpful for the utilization of waste coconut shell.
