Experimental Study on High Strength Self Compacting Concrete Using Nano Silica
P. Vamsi Krishna | A. H. L. Swaroop
Abstract: Nano science and technology is a new field of emergence in materials science and engineering, which forms the basis for evolution of novel technological materials. Nano technology finds application in various fields of science and technology. And newly invented Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) is also a new category of High Performance Concrete (HPC) characterized by its ability to spread and self consolidate in the form work exhibiting any significant separation of constituents. This article presents the benefits of SCC with Nano silica. Nano silica used as partial replacement of Portland cement in Self compacting concrete of M60 Grade and Gelinium B233 is used as super plasticizer. Fresh and hardened properties of SCC are established. There are six different replacement percentages of Nano-silica (0 % to 5 %) is used in this study. The Hardened Properties like compressive strength, split tensile strength, Flexural strength were evaluated at Seven And Twenty Eight days Of Curing Period.
