Influence of Aggressive Chemical Environment on High Volume Fly Ash Concrete

Alok Verma, Mukesh Shukla, Anil Kumar Sahu

Abstract


The benefits of using fly ash in cement concrete construction are well recognized in terms of cost reduction and management of environmental pollution. The advantages offered by the use of fly ash in concrete has impelled engineers to further extend the use of this waste product in the form of ‘High Volume Fly Ash Concrete’ (HVFAC). In the present paper; results of a study concerning the effect of acidic environment on the compressive strength of HVFAC have been reported. On the basis of results obtained; it has been concluded that HVFAC may be a promising material under such types of aggressive environmental conditions.

Keywords
