The remaining n= 30 samples, consisting of ten samples each of ART-I, II and III materials, were used for compressive strength testing.
Because the objective of this study was to characterize the compressive strength, our discussion focuses only on the maximum load and corresponding calculated strength.
Increase in slag content increases the CaO content and results in increased formation of C-A-S-H/C-S-H gel thereby compressive strength is improved (Chindaprasirt et al.
In addition, it was found that PCC35 met the minimum standard requirements of compressive strength for pozzolana based cement mortars as specified in the EAS 148-1:2000 standard.
As for experimental items, unit volume mass [12] and setting time were measured for fresh concrete, and compressive strength [13] of up to 91 days of age was to be measured for hardened concrete.
Since concrete compressive strength is a very important mechanical property in the design of reinforced concrete structures, the effect of calcium stearate on concrete compressive strength is also observed and discussed in depth.
Through laboratory tests based on (1) and (2), test the compressive strength, wet and dry cycles, and freeze-thaw cycle of typical carbonized masonry to determine the strength and durability of carbonized masonry.
According to the experimental data, the compressive strength of geopolymers containing zeolitic tuff was higher than that of kaolin added geopolymers.
The main objective of this experimental study is to investigate the optimum amount of micro, macro and hybrid steel fibres in terms of compressive strength and split tensile strength of steel fibre reinforced HSC.
Thus, it is included in the category of lightweight structural concrete because the compressive strength is not less than 17 MPa.
Drying before completion of curing shows larger reduction in compressive strength for high strength concrete than normal strength concrete (Carrasquillo et al., 1981).
Furthermore, the water permeability as well as the uniaxial compressive strength were measured.
