In recent years, civil construction industry has taken an environmental responsibility stance coupled to the social role it previously adopted. Owing to the fact that the construction industry is a productive sector, it generates environmental impacts through the extraction and use of prime matter, the production of building materials, the construction process, the generation of debris, and even by not recycling and by disregarding residues. The situation is due to the sector’s cultural condition and to the lack of planning and skilled labor. On the other hand, the construction industry is capable of reusing residues and is currently a major recycler of residues from other industrial sectors. This is due to the features of many residues as secondary material which may be applied in civil construction within a comprehensive manner through the partial or total replacement of prime matter used as standard input.
Viable alternatives to reuse residues and to recycle wastes without being simultaneously polluting agents are found. In Example, Millions of dry tons of Agricultural waste are being collected in our country annually that is partly used as food for cattle and as fuel to produce energy. But still, another amount of these wastes remains unused. Therefore, the waste is burned in the open atmosphere causing environmental pollution and health hazards. One of the most common among these wastes is the Sawdust, which is difficult to handle and store.
In line with this Research, a decision was made to study the possibility of making residential floors by using Sawdust-Cement-Gravel Mixture.
II. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
This study aims to find out if there is a Good Outcome in the possibility of using Sawdust-Cement-Gravel as an aggregate mixture in making residential floors. In the process, this study sought to show the answer to the following questions:
1. Does it Affects the Strength of the Flooring if we change the standard mixture from Sand,...
