As high strength concrete (HSC) is widely used in construction, more and more attention has been paid to crack resistance of it. In order to improve crack resistance of HSC, we study the influence of mineral admixtures (ground slag, silica fume and fly ash) on brittleness and characteristic length as crack resistance indexes.
A material other than water, aggregates, or cement that is used as an ingredient of concrete or mortar to control setting and early hardening, workability, or to provide additional cementing properties. Admixtures are generally used to alter the properties of concrete (such as increased workability or reduced water content, acceleration or retardation of setting time,

Quantities of materials required per 1 cum of high strength self compacting concrete mixes Table 1 gives the quantities of material required for M100 grade of high strength self compacting concrete using mineral admixtures.. To build high rise building by reducing column sizes and increasing available space, to built the super
In this experimental investigation, a brief review is presented on high strength concrete by using mineral and chemical admixtures. We have designed high strength concrete of grade M80. We have used all the mineral admixtures, namely, fly ash, blast furnace slag, silica fume and metakaolin, contributed by various reputed industries in India.
Other mineral admixtures Rice husk ash (RHA) This is a high reactivity pozzolan obtained by controlled calcination of rice husk. Field burnt rice husk is almost crystalline in nature, and makes a weak pozzolan. Thus, to obtain a high degree of pozzolanicity, a good control is needed while burning.
Asphalt Applications 6p1 Information Sheet 2 in this series, Construction and surfacing of parking areas for medium and heavyweight vehicles1 indicates, as its title suggests, the construction required and the types of surfacing materials that should provide adequate service
The high strength concrete has great advantage in the modern construction scenario as many statistics show that it has not only delivered in the strength aspects but also in terms of economy. Studies show that an approximate increase of 5 times in the strength of concrete will have only about 3 to 3.25 folds increase in concrete.
Mar 15, 2017With mineral additives added to the concrete mix the strength of concrete with the same or higher w/c ratio increases . Mineral additives (zeolites, SiO 2 micro dust etc.) are some of the most prospective components of concrete in the development of new building materials such as high performance concretes, special concretes absorbing heavy

Jun 11, 2010High performance concrete is a concrete mixture, which possess high durability and high strength when compared to conventional concrete. This concrete contains one or more of cementious materials such as fly ash, Silica fume or ground granulated blast
High strength concrete, as defined by the ACI, is a normal weight concrete which has an uniaxial compressive strength of 6000 psi (42 MPa) or greater at 28 days (1).
This paper reports the results of an experimental research that has been conducted to investigate the fatigue behaviour of high strength fibre reinforced concrete (HS FRC), produced using silica
STRENGTH AND ELASTICITY Strength is a measure of the ability of an aggregate particle to stand up to pulling or crushing forces. Elasticity measures the "stretch" in a particle. High strength and elasticity are desirable in aggregate base and surface courses. These qualities minimize the rate of disi ntegration and maximize the stability
MIX FOR HIGH STRENGTH CONCRETE. The increase of binder strength requires the cement and mineral admixtures suitable for high strength, and reduction of water cement ratio as the most effective means in terms of mix design. This is a well known fact by the classical name of water cement ratio
Index Termshigh performance concrete, mineral admixtures, superplasticizers, foundry sand etc. I. INTRODUCTION Concrete is the most widely used construction material all over the world in view of its strength, high mould ability, structural stability and economic considerations.
The most common use of high strength concrete is for construction of high rise buildings. At 969 feet, Chicago's 311 South Wacker Drive uses concrete with compressive strengths up to 12,000 psi and is one of the tallest concrete buildings in the United States.

High strength concrete is a very economical material for carrying vertical loads in high rise structures. Until a few years ago, 6,000 psi concrete was considered to be high strength. Today, using silica fume, concrete with compressive strength in excess of 15,000 psi can be readily produced.
Abstract High strength concrete (HSC) may be defined as concrete with specific characteristic cube strength between 60 and 100 N/mm2. In this experimental investigation, a brief review is made on high strength concrete by using mineral and chemical admixtures. Mineral admixtures, namely, fly ash and metakaolin were used.
This study focused on the impact of used engine oil on the compressive strength of concrete. The compressive strengths of concrete cubes soaked in used mineral oil for 6 months were compared with those of oil free concrete cubes.Five different concrete mixes were adopted to investigate the negative impact of mineral oil on low and high strength concrete.
