Mechanical Properties of Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Using Silica Fume & Quarry Waste as Partial Replacements
Concrete which encounters with distinct concoctions of performance and consistency necessities could be eternally accomplished by employing standard components which emanate high fractions of CO2. This prompts the idea to analyze numerous admixtures that could cut down this issue and additionally enhancing the features of concrete mixes. Also, the complications arising due to escalated prices of constituents, dumping issues and material scantiness support the employment of eco-friendly auxiliary integrants in concrete. The prevalent research gives out the attributes of concrete in which Silica fume (SF) and glass fiber (GF) are partly availed for cement while quarry waste for fine aggregate. Compressive strength goes on expands with silica fume inflation. Meanwhile, tensile strength is leading for a 10% silica fume mix with 1% glass fiber which is adopted as optimum. The experimentation is done by separately joining waste marble dust (MD) and granite dust (GD) of 0-30% with a rise of 5% by mass of binder for fresh and hardened features and the inferences are made in contrast with traditional concrete.
