Effect of Recron 3s Fibers on GGBS Replaced Cement Concrete

Priya A. Bhosale | Urmila. R. Kawade


Abstract: From last many decades, usage of concrete has increased on large scale all over the world. Concrete ingredients used are becoming more costly day by day and also demand for the same is increasing widely all over. These ingredients are also extinguishing with time and some of them are also polluting the surrounding environment on large scale. One of the main ingredients is cement, while production of cement CO2 is emitted out. Replacement of cement by a pozzalanic material named Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag, which is byproduct or waste product of steel manufacturing industries. Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag act as cost reducing ingredient and also increase many mechanical properties of concrete. This concrete is more environments friendly and will give more life to concrete. To maintain workability for lower water/cement ratio and to maintain the effect of admixture added, Superplasticiser is added by trial and error method. Mechanical properties of pozzolanic concrete using GGBS show that this concrete gives better compressive strength and increases durability of concrete. Glass fiber also increases mechanical properties like compressive strength, flexural strength and split tensile strength of concrete. This page revives all details of the material, test to be conducted on concrete using the supplementary admixture and literature showing the advantages of using GGBS in concrete in different proportion.
