The compressive strength of concrete using Bone powder(BP) as a partial replacement of cement was investigated. Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) was replace with BP in the ratios of 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%, and 100% respectively. Workability, setting time and compressive strength were determined. Mineralogical analysis of BP was first carried out to determine its chemical composition. The result showed that almost all the compounds of metals contained in cement are also… Expand
