Abstract :

The quantity of flyash produced from thermal power plants in India is approximately80 million tons each year, and its percentage utilization is less than10%. During the last few years, some cement companies have start educing fly ash in manufacturing cement, known as ‘Pozzolana Portland Cement’, but the overall percentage utilization remains very low and most of the flyash is dumped at landfills. An attempt has been made to utilize these cheaper materials in concrete production. Since flyash possesses cementitious properties, it is used to replace cement partially. Artificial fibres will be added by weight of the flyash blended cement in various proportions to enhance its mechanical strengths, microstructural properties. This thesis aims at investigating the characteristics of fresh concrete and various strengths of hardened concrete made with flyash blended cement, along with artificial fibers in various proportions. M25 grade concrete is considered for experimental studies with 53 grade Ordinary Portland Cement blended with varying percentages of flyash. The maximum size of coarse aggregateusedis20mmsize.Artificialfibers such as glass fibers and polypropylene fibres will be added in various percentages from0.5%to3%. The optimum percentage of flyash replacement in cement and various mechanical test will be carried out after the addition of artificial fibers in the fly ash blended cement concrete mix. Eventually the most effective fiber and its optimal dosages will be arrived.
