Abstract: 

This paper blends and adds artificial marble waste powder to concrete, aiming to disclose the effects of the powder on the physical and mechanical properties of concrete. The slump and other working properties of the fresh concrete were tested, and several mechanical parameters of the hardened concrete were measured, including cube compressive strength, flexural strength, elastic modulus and splitting tensile strength. Through the analysis of the test results and measured data, the following conclusions were put forward: Both blending and addition of artificial marble waste powder can improve the cohesiveness and bleeding of concrete. The blending is an effective way to increase the slump of concrete, while the addition suppresses the slump. During the addition, the strength indices of the concrete were all on the rise; the indices reached the maximum at the dosage of 10~15%, were comparable to those of the control group at the dosage of 20%, and plunged rapidly when the dosage surpassed 25%. The splitting tensile strength and the cube compressive strength has a power function relationship with the correlation coefficient of 0.845; the flexural strength and the cube compressive strength has a linear relationship with the correlation coefficient of 0.995; the elastic modulus and the cube compressive strength has a power function relationship with the correlation coefficient of 0.738. Finally, it is recommended to add 20% of artificial marble waste powder into concrete. The research findings lay the basis for the application of artificial marble waste powder in concrete and provide a new mineral admixture for the concrete industry
