Abstract

In response to the scarcity and rising costs of natural river sand, researchers are exploring alternatives like Used Foundry Sand (UFS) to promote sustainable construction practices. This study investigates the partial replacement of river sand with UFS, testing replacement levels from 0% to 25% by weight. Assessing fresh concrete properties and mechanical characteristics, including compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, and flexural strength, the research focuses on M20 and M30 concrete samples at different ages (7, 28, and 91 days). The findings indicate that up to 20% replacement of river sand with UFS maintains consistent compressive and flexural strength, but beyond this threshold, there’s a decline. However, split tensile strength increases after a 20% UFS addition, though it may affect other concrete properties. Overall, the study highlights UFS as a viable substitute for river sand, offering a sustainable solution to environmental concerns and resource scarcity
