report on effect of replacement of cement by fly ash silica flume


This study presents an experimental study on self-compacting concrete (SCC) with two cement content. The work involves three types of mixes, the first consisted of different percentages of fly ash (FA), the second uses different percentages of silica fume (SF), and the third uses a mixture of FA and SF. After each mix preparation, nine cylinder specimens are cast and cured. Three specimens are cured in water for 28 days, three specimens are cured in water for 7 days, and three specimens are left in air for 28 days. The slump and V-funnel test are carried out on the fresh SCC and concrete compressive strength values are determined. The results show that SCC with 15% of SF gives higher values of compressive strength than those with 30% of FA and water cured specimens for 28 days give the highest values of compressive strength.


Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is considered as a concrete which can be placed and compacted under its self weight with little or no vibration effort, and which is at the same time cohesive enough to be handled without segregation or bleeding of fresh concrete. SCC mixes usually contain superplasticizer, high content of fines and/or viscosity modifying additive (VMA). Whilst the use of superplasticizer maintains the fluidity, the fine content provides stability of the mix resulting in resistance against bleeding and segregation. The use of fly ash and blast furnace slag in SCC reduces the dosage of superplasticizer needed to obtain similar slump flow compared to concrete mixes made with only Portland cement.
