Abstract
This paper examined the viability of using agricultural waste materials as coarse aggregate in three-layered concrete. Concrete layers included crushed stone, and coarse aggregate replacements of periwinkle shell, and clamshell. For each sample type, the layer depth, and mix ratio varied. The physical and mechanical properties of the concrete beams and cube samples were then determined. Test results showed that while the bending capacity, shear resistance, and tensile strength can be improved by employing the configurations of beam PC-3 and PC-5, other mechanical properties like compression strength cannot be improved. Clamshell and Periwinkle shells have many environmental benefits that make them suitable alternative aggregates in construction.
