Abstract: It has now been found that industrial solid waste management is a major worldwide concern. Because of its heavy price effects, which cause economic and other environmental risks, most industries are not interested in the therapy and secure disposal of these waste. The disposal of waste foundry sand and slag is of main significance due to the trivial amount produced from the foundries throughout the world. Steel slag is a waste product produced during steel production. This waste has disposed of in the form of landfills, which creates enormous pollution of the soil. As a result, the need to use these waste is very essential due to increased demand to protect the usual environment, mainly in fields where it is built up. Consequently, replacing of natural aggregates with foundry slag would lead in considerable environmental advantages. In addition, paver blocks that are commonly used in building are inferior to burnt clay bricks in structure. In this project, therefore, normal fine and coarse aggregate should be substituted by foundry slag and foundry sand in the paver block. Several studies will be used to perform the studies, including compressive strength testing, tensile strength testing and flexure strength testing. Foundry waste is gathered from Foundries around Coimbatore.
Keywords: Foundry slag, Foundry sand, Paver block, Compressive, Tensile and Flexure test.
