Treatment of Sand Filter Backwash Water from Water Treatment Plant

Sponsored by:  Malegaon Municipal Corporation 2019-20.

In this study, several tests were conducted to investigate the possibility of re-use of the filter backwash water. Experiments were performed on Raw Water and sand filter backwash water from the Water Treatment plant, Malegaon. Various Tests such as turbidity, color, odor, and total suspended solids were performed to reduce the impurities. The final result shows that the turbidity achieved was close to the standard limit for drinking water as per IS 10500 (2012).

A Review On Development Of Flyash Based High Strength Geopolymer Concrete

The development in geopolymer concrete enables to achieve high strength concrete having the strength more than 90MPa which is aimed to reduce structural member sizes and for economical construction in the case of long-span bridges and tall buildings. Also the use of flyash in concrete reduces the greenhouse gas emission in the atmosphere by reducing cement usage.

A review on Geopolymer Concrete Using Partial Replacement of Demolished Aggregate

The study revealed that there is a possibility to replace natural coarse aggregate with demolished concrete in the geopolymer concrete. By the use of demolished aggregate in concrete, environmental pollution, and reduction in a valuable landfill will be evaded.

Effect of partial replacement of coarse aggregate with plastic aggregate

Plastic waste is a silent threat to the environment and their disposal is a serious issue for solid waste management. In this experiment, tests were conducted to find out the material properties of plastic. The properties of plastic aggregate were compared with the properties of natural aggregate on the basis of compressive strength test, split tensile strength test, and flexural strength test. It is found that the use of plastic aggregate results in the formation of lightweight concrete. The compressive, tensile, and flexural strength of concrete reduces with the increase of the percentage of replacement of plastic aggregate.

Experimental investigation on partial replacement of concrete in tension zone by polyurethane

Concrete is weak in tension therefore steel reinforcement is provided in the tension zone. The concrete in the tension zone acts as a stress transfer medium between both sides of the neutral axis. In the RC beam strength of concrete lays below the neutral axis is not fully utilized. This un-utilized concrete is also called as sacrificial concrete. So this sacrificial concrete can be replaced by some lightweight materials. Hence, the experiment shows that the partial replacement of concrete in the tension zone by polyurethane is possible.

Replacement of sand in concrete with fly ash-plastic waste composite material

We are aware that plastic waste is a major problem we are facing today, most of the plastic waste is non-degradable and techniques to utilize this waste have become an important need of today’s world. In this project Composite of Fly Ash and Plastic Waste (Polyethylene) was used as a replacement of fine aggregate in concrete. Using this composite material, we can tackle the problem of scarcity of natural sand and its effect on the environment. Hence, the experiment shows that the partial replacement of sand in concrete with flyash-plastic waste composite material is possible and gives satisfactorily result.

Modular expansion joint in bridge

Modular bridge expansion joints (MBEJ) are widely used throughout the world for the provision of controlled pavement continuity during seismic, thermal expansion, contraction, and long-term creep and shrinkage movements of bridge superstructures. It is considered to be the most modern design of the waterproof bridge. This type of joint is used for expansion joint in heavy traffic load and is very beneficial for long-span movement in the bridge.

Reclamation of waste water from Mosque

It is a treatment process of greywater from the mosque which can be reused for gardening and irrigations purpose. The reuse of greywater is increasing rapidly in many households around the country, but there are no in-depth studies that provide a clear understanding of how the greywater reuse will impact on soil, plant and human health in the long-term. This project helps us to understand long term use and behavior of greywater in housing industries.
