Abstract

The use of Supplementary Cementitious Material (SCM) is widely used in production of sustainable concrete. Blended cements, incorporating SCM such as Pulverized Fly Ash (PFA) and Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS) have been widely used to reduce the cement contents and avoid adverse environmental impacts of CO2 produced during cement manufacturing. The analysis of various structural properties of concrete such as compressive strength, flexural strength and modulus of elasticity is important for its structural application. In this research, flexural strength of 100mmx100mmx500mm beams made from blended cement were tested under three curing conditions i.e. winter, summer and under water and the flexural strength was calculated using EN-12390-5 at the ages of 28 days and 56 days. For modulus of elasticity, concrete cylinders 150mmx300mm were tested as per procedure described in BS 1881-121(1983) at the age of 28 days. The compressive strength, flexural strength and modulus of elasticity for blended cement incorporating PFA and GGBFS has been increased under summer curing environment. The experimental values of Modulus of Elasticity are compared with the provision of BS 1881.
