Influence on the Properties of Concrete Containing Steel Fibers and Alccofine

2020 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
Innovative materials are required in the field of concrete technology for the better construction of the structure. The innovative concrete should have better durability and good aesthetical appearance. The present investigation is aimed at achieving high performance, better and more authentic and uniform quality. In this paper, the effect of Alccofine and conjointly Alccofine and steel fibers, on the mechanical properties of concrete has been evaluated after the curing period of 28 and 56

Results showed that compressive and flexural strength increased with an increase in Alccofine percentage. It was also observed that concrete with steel fibers along with 15% Alccofine exhibited highest compressive and flexural strength. Thus, the conjoint presence of Alccofine and steel fibers yields better than concrete without admix.
