Admixtures, Carbon Fibers, Steel Fibers & Waste Paper


The necessity of providing low-cost, sustainable housing has led to greater interest in alternative construction materials. For enhancing performance of concrete admixtures are used in conventional concrete. In this terms conventional concrete means cement, Aggregate, water only. And admixtures terms as recycle or waste material like paper, carbon fibers & steel fibers. The combination of these conventional concrete with admixture produces a new construction material, which may provide a way to produce affordable housing on a large scale. Present study involves different strength aspect experiment i.e. compression, split tensile, flexural strength on a concrete. And compare between conventional concrete & additives (admixture) like waste paper, steel fibers and carbon fibers. Thus additives mass content will use are 10%, 15% and 20% by total mix proportion M20 grade of concrete. Experiment done on both fresh & hardened concrete as per IS specimen.
