Self compacting self curing concrete with lightweight aggregates

Gopi Rajamanickam, Revathi Vaiyapuri

Abstract

The self compacting self curing concrete made by partially replacing fine aggregate with the light expanded clay aggregate and fly ash aggregate is described in the paper. At that, maximum 25 % of fine aggregate (measured by volume) was replaced. Fresh concrete properties and mechanical properties of self compacting self curing concrete were analysed. Test results indicate that all mixes satisfied the self compacting properties of concrete. Furthermore, the concrete mix with 15 % of expanded clay and the mix with 15 % of fly ash exhibited greater strength under self curing conditions, when compared to the control mix and other mixes.
