An Experimental Investigation on Strength Properties of Cement Concrete Modified with Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag

Authors(2) :-Dr. V. Bhaskar Desai , C.Chaitanya lakshmi

In the present scenario there is necessity for finding alternate artificial fine aggregates making use of waste materials from the industries. An attempt has been made to use Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS) as the basic ingredient in preparing GGBFS modified concrete and in this process along with the mechanical properties Mode-II fracture properties are studied. By varying the percentages of GGBFS as fine aggregate in concrete replacing the conventional fine aggregate in percentages of 0, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 by weight, the properties such as compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength, In-plane shear strength etc., are studied and analysis of hardened samples has been done through X-Ray Diffraction technique. This study is expected to through some light on better understanding of the “Strength properties of GGBFS modified concrete.”
