Paper Title:
Compressive Strength of Brick Made from Waste Materials
  Abstract

The objective of this research was to make brick from waste materials, such as MSWI fly ash, water sludge and coffee sludge. It was made by mixing raw materials, drying at room temperature for 24 hrs, and at 60°C ~ 100°C for 1hrs. The dried bricks sintered to 1100 ~ 1150°C by 5°C/min and then kept at that temperature for 2hrs. Compressive strength, water absorption were measured to discuss the characteristics of brick prepared. Toxicity characteristic leaching procedure(TCLP) test is also used to evaluate the environmental safety. The optimum condition was obtained at the mixing ratio as followed; 20:19.5:0.5:60 of MSWI fly ash, water sludge, coffee sludge and clay. Considering the value of compressive strength and water adsorption for prepared brick, it can be used as an alternative brick.
