Performance of Self-Compacting Concrete With Different Size of Recycled Ceramic Aggregates
recently, self-compacting concrete (SCC) has acquired widespread utilized for position in stuffed reinforced concrete structures with hard casting conditions. For such purposes, the fresh concrete needs to have high fluidity and excellent cohesiveness. Self-compacting concrete has ability consists of not merely high deformability of paste or mortar, but additionally resistance to segregation between coarse aggregate and mortar in the event the concrete passes throughout the confined region of reinforcing bars. In order to relieve the volume of ceramic waste materials from the construction industry, it will be possible, between additional applications, to utilize it as aggregates inside the production of self-compact concrete. Using detrimental waste materials within concrete-making will certainly produce to an eco-friendly environment and also sustainable concrete technology and so such concrete can also be called as ‘green’ concrete. This specific paper had been carried out to formulate the properties of self-compacting concrete (SCC) by using mineral admixture (fly ash), chemical admixture with different sizes of ceramic aggregate. Three self-compacting concrete (SCC) mixes and three control concrete have been researched in this study; compressive strength, expansion, shrinkage and flexure strength of reinforced concrete beam investigates. The results indicated the self-compacted concrete made with ceramic aggregate; 7mm maximum size show good workability and compressive strengths. Self-compacted concrete produced higher shrinkage and lower expansion comparing with normal concrete. Test on reinforced concrete beam show the self-compacted concrete beam performed better than normal concrete beam.
