Abstract

UTILIZATION OF RICE HUSK ASH IN CONCRETE AS A PARTIAL REPLACEMENT OF CEMENT

Kareem Cornelius Aremu*

ABSTRACT

High cost of construction materials and the need for providing a sustainable growth in the construction field has prompted this work to search for alternative materials feasible for use in construction. For this objective, the use of agricultural by-products and industrial waste products comes to mind to replace Portland cement partially of which you will agree that they will be of great advantage. These industrial wastes and agricultural by-products such as Fly Ash, Rice Husk Ash, Silica Fume, Calcined Clay Puzzolana (Surkhi), and Ground Blast Furnace Slag can be used to replaced cement because of their pozzolanic behavior, which otherwise requires large tract of lands for dumping. In the present investigation, Rice Husk Ash has been used as an admixture to cement in concrete and its properties has been studied. An attempt was also done to examine the strength and workability parameters of concrete. In the use of rice husk ash as partial cement replacement, concrete grade of M15 and M20 were used and four different replacement levels namely 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% are selected and studied with respect to the replacement method.
