Abstract

In this paper we have discussed the effect of Calcium Chloride on the Flexural strength of concrete. Cement concrete prism of 700mm x 150mm x 150mm were cast using fresh water and calcium Chloride. The constant water cement ratio (w/c) was kept 0.45 by weight for all the mixes prepared. 15 prisms were casted for experiment. They were cured in fresh water. The curing was done for 7, 14, and 28 days, then crushed using the Flexural Strength Test Apparatus at prescribed ages. There was an increase in the Flexural strength of concrete for concrete specimens mixed and cured with calcium chloride.
