Abstract

The objective of this study about durability characteristics of self-compacting concrete. This research is proposed to replace the constituent materials by mineral Admixtures and adding chemical admixtures. Also it is proposed to use self-curing compound instead of conventional water curing. Many researchers studied about the self-compacting concrete and not for self-compacting and self-curing concrete, but this study proposed a methodology for self-compacting and curing concrete. Durability properties such as acid attack, sulphate attack, Alkaline Attack, water absorption and sorptivity has been found out and compared with conventional concrete. Cube in size of 150mm×150mm×150mm were cast and tested to analyze the durability characteristics. Attributes deliberated for diverse percentages of self-curing agent (0%, 5%, 10%, 15% weight of cement) and from the outcomes, conclusion may perhaps draw that 15% LWA SCSCC blend offered more strength and durability.
