Effects of silica fume and fly ash on the properties of high performance concrete

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate the effects of silica fume and fly ash on the fresh and hardened properties of high performance concrete. Silica fume and fly ash were incorporated separately and jointly in different concrete mixtures. The individual and combined effects of silica fume and fly ash were monitored with respect to various fresh and hardened properties of concrete. Test results reveal that silica fume performed very well to improve the properties of high performance concrete. Silica fume contributed to provide the highest level of compressive strength, dynamic modulus of elasticity and pulse velocity. In addition, silica fume produced the lowest level of initial surface absorption and drying rate, and thus indicated good durability. In contrast, fly ash alone could not contribute significantly to improve the properties of high performance concrete. However, silica fume and fly ash jointly improved the fresh and hardened properties of concrete.
