Assessment of Fresh and Hardened Properties of Self-Compacting Concrete made with Fly ash as Mineral Admixture
Pages : 158-163
This paper study the effect of fly ash (FA) added to self-compacting concrete (SCC) mixture with different percentages. the experiments were conduct by varying the percentage of fly ash as mineral admixture and the amount of water, the fresh requirement of SCC was investigated by using the slump test, V-funnel and L-box as specified by guidelines on SCC by European Federation of National Associations Representing Producers and Application of Specialist Building Products for Concrete (EFNARC), addition of that the compressive strength, tensile strength and porosity test were investigate. Test result found out that the higher compressive strength was found with 5% of PVA and water to cement ratio was 0.25 , also the result found out that the fly ash will increase the compressive strength and decrease the porosity of SCC at long term.
