Design Experiment for Leveraging Material Value Coal Ash as Material Mixture of Paving Block
Department Industrial Engineering, University of Indonesia, Depok, Indonesia
The coal-fired thermal power plant is the main source of coal ash production. Coal ash collected at the bottom of the furnace (boiler) is called coal bottom ash (CBA) and fly ash remaining combustion called coal fly ash (CFA). In Indonesia, the utilization of bottom ash and fly ash generally is still limited to landfill material due to the value of the material too low. The objective of this research is to leverage the value of the utilization of bottom ash and fly ash materials as a mixer of construction industry products. Design of Experiment (DoE) was conducted on paving block product using various experimental factors such as composition of sand, cement, bottom ash, fly ash, and curing period of product. This Design of Experiment (DoE) applied orthogonal array to finding the best mixed compositions that affect the quality of the end result. After it, the proof was performed with a compressive strength test and water absorption test to meet the standard requirements. Testing compressive strength of paving block was done at 7 days, 14 days and 28 days to get the best result.
