Fly ash and silica fume concrete mix design

15. Effect of fly ash and silica fume on concrete properties: Workability: Fly ash increases workability when compared with conventional concrete with same water content. The use of good quality fly ash with a high fineness and low carbon content reduces the water demand of concrete . Fresh concrete containing silica fume is more cohesive and

Using Fly Ash in Concrete - National Precast Concrete

A superplasticizer combined with fly ash can be used to make high-performance and high-strength concrete. Concrete containing fly ash generally performs better than plain concrete in drying shrinkage tests. Disadvantages The quality of fly ash is important-but it can vary. Poor-quality fly ash can have a negative effect on concrete.

Shrinkage and cracking behavior of high performance

Modern concretes often incorporate several chemical admixtures to alter the properties of fresh or hardened concrete. In this work, the influences of three types of chemical admixtures; calcium nitrite inhibitor (CNI), retarder (D − 17) and superplasticizer (W − 19) on free shrinkage and restrained shrinkage cracking of high performance concrete were experimentally investigated. The test

Hydration, Shrinkages and Mechanical Properties of Ultra

The new requirements for strength and durability have led to the development of Ultra High Performance concrete (UHPC) with outstanding mechanical properties and durability. However, the application of this type of concrete is exceptional, because of the high dosage of cement and the incorporation of expensive materials, such as silica fume (SF) whose dosage can reach 30% by weight of cement.

It was determined that the mixes containing 50% slag gave the best overall performance. Slag was particularly beneficial for concrete that used recycled aggregate and could reduce strength losses. Initial durability results indicated that corrosion of fibres in the different concrete mixes when exposed to seawater was minimal.
