Strength and Durability Studies on Higher Grade Concrete with High Volume Fly ash

(M.Tech) Structural Engineering, Dept. of Civil Engineering
Associate Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering Priyadarshini Institute of Technology & Management

Portland cement, as an ingredient in concrete, is one of the widely used construction materials, especially in developing countries. The CO2 emission during its production and the utilization of natural resources are important issues for the construction industry to participate in sustainable development. These limitations led to the search for alternative binders or cement substitutes. Fly ash is finely divided residue resulting from the combustion of powered coal and transported by the flue gases and collected by electrostatic precipitator. There are multiple benefits for the sustainable development of the construction industry by using fly ash to increase the strength characteristics of structural members. The objective of the present investigation is to study the mechanical strength behavior of High Volume Fly ash concrete pavement slab. The optimum maximum coarse aggregate size for the best compressive strength of 28 day concrete was therefore found to be 8mm for the water/cement ratio of 0.63. The analysis further shows that as heterogeneity increases the compressive strength of concrete reduces.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
