A study on high-performance concrete behaviour with Metakoin and Fly Ash


Mayank Bansal, Monika Jhakhar

Micro fillers and pozzolanic materials are both functions performed by mineral admixtures. Strength and durability are enhanced by their usage in High Performance Concrete (HPC). Metakaolin and fly ash, two mineral admixtures, will be tested to see how they affect the performance of High-Performance Concrete. The impact of mineral admixtures on strength and durability has been examined. Metakaolin and fly ash are used as admixtures in this M60-grade high-performance concrete. An IS 10262:2019 mix design was used. Compressive, tensile and flexural strengths of the concrete were tested at various ages to determine the optimal quantity of cement by varying mineral additive replacement levels. Studies on the created high-performance concrete's endurance, such as its resistance to acids and sulphates, were also conducted. Various quantities of MK and FA were used in the study: zero, 5%, 7.5%, and 10%, respectively. A superplasticizer of 1% by weight of the cementitious material was added to the concrete to increase the workability of the concrete.
