BENEFITS OF USE OF RICE HUSK ASH IN CONCRETE
In this investigation, a feasibility study is made to use Rice Husk Ash as an admixture to an already replaced Cement with fly ash (Portland Pozzolana Cement) in Concrete, and an attempt has been made to investigate the strength parameters of concrete (Compressive and Flexural). For normal concrete, Indian Standard (IS) method of mix design is adopted. Five different replacement levels namely 5%, 7.5%, 10%, 12.5% and 15% are chosen for the study concerned for replacement method. A range of curing periods starting from 3 days, 7 days, 28 days and 56 days are considered in the present study.
