Experimental Study on Strength and Abrasion-Resistance Enhancement Admixture


Article Preview

Cement concrete has an increasing utilization in highway construction. However, the lower flexural tensile strength and abrasion-resistance restricted the development of concrete pavement with heavy traffic. Hence, It has highlighted the need for research on high performance concrete (HPC). The design of specific concrete normally depends on the mixing of mineral admixtures in concrete mixture. This paper presents the first experimental study on strength and abrasion-resistance enhancement admixture (SAEA) mixed with slag powder, steel slag powder and silica fume. The optimal proportion of three mineral admixture and reasonable mixed amount of SAEA were then given, and the mechanism of SAEA reacted in concrete was analyzed based on sol-gel theory. Lastly, the effect of concrete mixed with SAEA was validated and the micro-structure transformation of specimens was given by SEM.
