A Study on Compressive Strength of Cement with Rice Husk ASH

Authors(2) :-Mondem Mabjan , V. Mounika

In this Research work ,the investigation was carried to find the effect of partial substitution of cement by rice husk ash (RHA) in proportion starting from 15% mix together in concrete by substitution of cement with the moderate increase of RHA 5%, last proportion was taken 15% RHA .The test on hardened concrete were destructive in nature which includes compressive test on cube for size (150*150*150) at 3,7 and 28 days of curing done as per IS 10269 2009,the work performed in this research reports the effect on the behavior of concrete produced from cement with RHA at different proportion on the mechanical properties of concrete such as compressive strength. Investigation reported that compressive strength increases by 32% were obtained at different combinations at 5% ,10% and 15% RHA partial replacement of RHA produces the environmental effects , so this replacement is eco friendly and improves its strength.
