Experimental Study on Microbacterial Concrte Using Fly Ash

Authors(2) :-Nivya C, B K Baby Shamini

Microbial concrete is a recently developed technology in the field of Civil Engineering. This experimental study explains about the effects of using favourable microorganisms in concrete. When bacterial culture is mixed with concrete calcium carbonate is precipitated and it in turn improves the strength, durability and crack filling ability of concrete. Fly ash, starch medium, bacterial culture and synthetic polymers are provided inorder to test the compressive strength, tensile strength, absorption and permeability. Implementing of bacteria improves strength, durability, and strength of fly ash concrete through self-healing effect.
