Strength and Durability Studies on Silica Fume in Slag Concrete

(M.Tech) Structural Engineering, Dept. of Civil Engineering
Associate Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering Priyadharshini Institute of Tech & Science

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 utilisation of natural resources are important issues for the construction industry to participate in sustainable development. These days the waste materials of industries is on its way to increase day by day due to strict environmental policies and this waste contains SCMs generally. They can be utilised not only to improve properties of concrete but also to prevent pollution due to reduction in carbon dioxide emission. Steel slag aggregate generally exhibit a propensity to expand because of the presence of free lime and magnesium oxides hence steel slag aggregates are not used in concrete making. Proper weathering treatment and use of pozzolanic materials like silica fume with steel slag is reported to reduce the expansion of the concrete. The effect of oxide composition of the binder material used, on the strength and durability properties of concrete is also investigated.

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.
