Abstract: Rice husk ash (RHA) is an agricultural based pozzolanic material, which contains high amount of silica content. This experimental research was conducted on Self Compaction Concrete (SCC), to generate an economical concrete by using Manufactured Sand (M-sand) and Rice Husk Ash. Natural River sand usage is damaging the river beds, causing the drastic changes in ground water table and cost of river sand increasing day by day. To overcome this problems manufactured sand is used in SCC production. Rice husk Ash is very cheaper when compared to the Cement. It is extracted from Rice Husk which is a waste of Agricultural product. This material can be useful to generate a sustainable construction material. This paper presents the experimental results on development of mechanical properties of SCC with M-sand and Rice Husk Ash. Experiment conducted on 6 different mixes. i.e Partial Replacement with RHA (0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%). For each mix Fresh properties (Slump flow & L-Box Test) & mechanical properties (Compressive strength, Split Tensile strength and Flexural strength) for 7days, 28days and 60days along with Density comparisons are compared. Keywords: Self Compacting Concrete, Rice Husk Ash, M-sand.
Scope of the Article: Mechanical Design
