Influence of Calcium Aluminate Cement and Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag on the Synthesis of Rice Husk Ash-Based Geopolymer Mortars
The manufacture of Portland cement is energy intensive and is associated with carbon dioxide emission of approximately 7% of total global emission. The process also produces pollution in the forms of dust, noise, and vibration with operating machinery during blasting in quarries. Geopolymer material is formed through the reaction of silica and alumina oxides with alkali activator and has appeared as a viable alternative to the Portland cement in the construction field due to good properties such as high compressive, ...
Classification of recycled sands and their applications as fine aggregates for concrete and bituminous mixtures
As a result of the drive towards waste-poor world and reserving the non-renewable materials, recycling the construction and demolition materials become very essential. Now reuse of the recycled concrete aggregate more than 4 mm in producing new concrete is allowed but with natural sand a fine aggregate while. While the sand portion that represent about 30\% to 60\% of the crushed demolition materials is disposed off. To perform this research, recycled concrete sand was produced in the laboratory while nine recycled ...
