The Water Requirement of the Cattle Manure Ash
This paper studies the water requirement of the two cattle manure ash in two different experiment conditions. According to the flying ash used in cement and concrete, the water requirement of the cattle manure ash is studied and the flying ash water requirement is compared when two different superplasticizers (the naphthalene-based water reducer and the polycarboxylate-based water reducer) is added into the mortar with cattle manure ash and flying ash. The result shows that the water demand ratio of the cattle manure 2 is more than that of the cattle manure 1, cement and fly ash with superplasticizer and no superplasticizer. The result provide calculation basis to the aiming mixture design of the cattle manure ash concrete.
