Abstract – Usage of Fly ash in the manufacturing of cement bricks has been emerging into a greater extent. In this paper various improvements that had been done for various parameters is discussed. Importance has been given specially to Compressive strength, Water absorption, and efflorescence. Additives like Ironite have also been added for the improvement of Compressive strength, Reduction of water absorption etc., usual composition includes Fly ash, Lime, Gypsum and Quarry dust.

KeywordsFly Ash, Quarry Dust, Lime, Gypsum, Ironite
