Compressive Strength and Density of Fly-Ash Substituted Soil-Cement Concrete

Abstract:

Article Preview

Soil-cement concrete can be manufactured by mixing portland cement, water and on-site soil and has been studied by the authors. This study deals with compressive strength and density of soil-cement concrete where the portland cement was partially substituted with fly-ash. Saturated surface-dry condition of on-site soils has never been taken into account in the conventional mix design whereas experiments of determining the saturated surface-dry conditions were carried out with the help of the concept of effective water content to assure the quality and the designed strength. Effects of fly-ash on the strength and density of soil-cement concrete were studied by altering cement-fly-ash ratio, soil-sand ratio, binder-water ratio and age under a constant unit water content
