This paper investigates the water permeability, consistency and density of architectural mortar with various contents of glass sand as fine aggregate. To reduce the effect of alkali-silica-reaction (ASR), metakaolin (MK) was used as supplementary cementitious material (SCM) instead of a component of white cement. The microstructure of glass sand mortar was visualized by means Author: Guoqing Jing, Gang Huang, Wenjun Zhu. Durability is defined as the capability of concrete to resist weathering action, chemical attack and abrasion while maintaining its desired engineering properties. It normally refers to the duration or life span of trouble-free performance. Different concretes require different degrees of durability depending on the exposure environment and properties desired. The aim of this investigation is to study the use of the water soluble polyethylene glycol as self-curing agent. The function of self-curing agents is to reduce the water evaporation from concrete and hence they increase the water retention capacity of concrete compared to the conventionally cured use of self-curing admixtures is very important from the point of view that Author: S.

Materials and methods An investigation of the various properties of sand as affecting its use in concrete and mortar book of the specimens Air dried fine sand, with particle size less than mm, was used due to its similarity to sand in the Libyan Desert where the first author came from.

Introduction. Cementitious materials, mainly in the form of concrete are the most widely used construction material in the world because of easy availability of its constituent materials and unique properties; every year more than 1 m 3 of concrete is produced per person worldwide.However, the sustainability and durability of reinforced concrete structures are still the main Cited by: 4.

Concrete is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens (cures) over time. In the past limebased cement binders were often used, such as lime putty, but sometimes with other hydraulic cements, such as a calcium aluminate cement or with Portland cement to form Portland cement concrete (for its.

An Investigation into the Use of Manufactured Sand as a % Replacement for Fine Aggregate in Concrete sand concrete exceeds that of natural sand concrete. ANN proved a valuable and reliable method of reference to the effects of clay particles on.

Concrete is resistant to wind and water. Therefore, it is very useful in storm shelters. As a soundproofing material cinder concrete could be used.

Disadvantages of Concrete. Compared to other binding materials, the tensile strength of concrete is relatively low. Concrete is less ductile. The weight of compared is high compared to its strength.

These were mixed in different proportions to get a consistent combined FM. The combined FM is determined like All-in-aggregate FM. In the present study we have selected M30 Grade of concrete mix. To find out the effect of fineness modulus (FM) of sand on concrete, sand of different FM from to is chosen.

This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation on the effect of sieved coal bottom ash as a substitute for natural sand on the properties of concrete, when an extra 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% and 30% weight of cement was added.

First, M grade concrete was casted and tested; using a fixed percentage of 70% sieved coal bottom ash and 30% natural sand. concretes can be classified as; mud concrete, lime concrete, cement concrete and polymer concrete.

World demand for cement and concrete additives is projected to increase percent annually in next few years. This book basically deals with rock and stone, formation of rocks, classification of rocks, geological.

Modulus of Elasticity of Concrete can be defined as the slope of the line drawn from stress of zero to a compressive stress of f’c. As concrete is a heterogeneous material. The strength of concrete is dependent on the relative proportion and modulus of elasticity of the aggregate.
