Study on Base Body of Vegetable Concrete


Article Preview

The self-adaptive vegetation concrete is a porous concrete which has characteristics of self-adaptation (suitable for acid-alkali degree and humidity that plant grow automatically), self-supply (the necessary nutrition element offers plants to grow within the structure) and necessary mechanics of the project. To meet the vegetable growth in self-adaptive vegetable concrete, the base body of vegebable concrete is produced with many kinds of cementitious material and complex of different aggregate. The experiment shows that the vegetable concrete base body which has a suitable acid-alkali degree environment of seed sprout (PH < 9) and suitable space environment for plant root system growth( porosity rate > 40%) is produced through using self-made soil stabilizer (the proportion of soil stabilizer and the clay is 1:1) and different aggregates (cobble, coral reef and ceramsite).
