Experimental Study of Properties of Fiber Reinforced Concrete using GGBS

Authors(2) :-Vijay Madhavrao Takekar, Prof. G. R. Patil

Present paper focuses on Grounded Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS) as an option for binder and filler materials in case of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC). The experimental result analyses are investigated for structural properties of fiber reinforced concrete equipped with GGBS. Concrete grade M-50 was taken for study. GGBBS with 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% and 40% by weight of ordinary cement was added successively; also 1.5% of steel fiber was kept constant. Variables included aggregate size (10mm, 12mm and 20mm) with percentage of GGBS in order to study the effect on compressive strength, tensile strength and flexural strength. 150mmX150mmX150mm size of cube and 100mmX100mmX500mm size of beam were tested for strength performance in form of compressive and flexural strength respectively. Samples with duplication of GGBS were cured for 56 days in comparison to normal cement which requires up to 28 days. Experiments with these samples were carried out to study the strength characteristics of the concrete. Results indicate that as the percentage of GGBS increases, the workability of GGBS fiber reinforced concrete also increases. The result also includes effect of cost and compressive strength for GBBS fiber reinforced concrete.
