Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) The thermal power plants are globally criticized for generating large amount of solid wastes often with a potential environmental impact. The main objective of this study is characterized the CCRs (Coal Combustion Residues) produced by the thermal power plant in the East region of Morocco (Jerada city). On other hand, in order to use this CCRs (fly ash and bottom ash) effectively, it is necessary to study the raw material of which they are trained in all their aspects and to check their behavior in the various employment possibilities. For this purpose, mechanical compressive test on 10x10x10 cm3 of mortar specimens and chemical test of X-ray on CCRs are performed. We did work on the use of CCRs as an addition in Portland cement. Firstly, compressive tests and chemical requirements were used to evaluate the pozzolanic activity index according to ASTM C618 which is about 89,75%. Indeed, the results of an experimental plan, on compressive strength of the new by-product (10% CCRs and 90% cement), gave a good response of our plan, it’s about 24,20 MPa. Secondly, we have added this new by-product with the clay to produce the fired compressed bricks according to a new experimental plan, where we found that the most response of the compressive strength equal to 3,12 MPa, in which a minimum volume of water of 581 cm3 and a minimum quantity of clay of 50% (by total mass of 1kg), were used. In order to valorize these residues, our results show a good correlation with the ASTM standard and we can use this by-products in bricks manufacture.
