Use of Ultrafine Materials for Cellular Concrete Blocks
Monica S. More, Yadnesh D. Patil
In this modern technology constructions, the height of structure is moving longitudinally higher. For the requirement of safe structure it is necessary to transmit the load from top floor to the foundation of the structure. Due to higher structural building, size of foundation is increasing and sometimes tend to do combined footing which leads to critical design of the foundation. Thus to tackle with this situation, it is necessary to minimize the load of structure. In this modern technology, there are few research has been conducted on cellular light weight concrete block which is need of future. With this concept, in this project few trials are conducted where cementitious material is replaced by foaming agent, like synthetic foaming agent by 0 %, 25 %, and 50 % in which the cementitious material is used as a combination of 50 %OPC & 50 %slag, 30 %OPC & 70 %slag and Ground Granulated Blast Slag has been replaced by 3 % of alccofine in both cementitious combination. Specimens are casted for testing of compressive strength, water absorption and water sorptivity test. It is observed that 50 % OPC and 50 % slag with 3 % of Alccofine is replaced by 50 % of foaming agent gives better result when compared to other combinations.
