 Strength properties

Now a day, the utilization of self-compacting concrete (SCC) has become popular in creating RC structures. Apart from self-compaction, SCC has got many advantages such as excellent flow ability, filling ability, smooth finish of surface, ease of work etc. The use of waste material in concrete is the area of having scope for researchers for many years. Use of waste material reduces the consumption of cement by construction sector. In this present experimental work, dolomite powder is used as fractional replacement material for cement. The cement in the SCC is replaced by dolomite at fractions of 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, and 70%. Fly ash is also added to the mix at constant fraction of 18% of the cement. The strength of SCC is assessed by performing compression test, splitting tension test and bending test. The test results showed that the use of dolomite powder in SCC is advantageous up to 20% replacement fraction. It is also observed that the strength of DC40 mix (i.e the mix having Dolomite at 40% of cement) is almost equal to the strength of normal SCC. Even at 70% replacement level, the strength of SCC having dolomite achieved is 25 MPa. SEM images are analyzed to identify the spread of hydrated products.
