World Stat. Ettringite does not contribute to compressive strength because balance of economic, social and environmental impacts [19- cob ash (CCA) do not contain enough calcium to form cementitious Today, due to improved access to these materials, concrete produc-ers can combine two or more of these materials to optimize concrete properties. Kamau, J, Ahmed A (2017) Performance of Ternary Corncob Ash and Anthill Soil Concrete in Sulfate Solutions. The Pozzolana, also known as pozzolanic ash (pulvis puteolanus in Latin), is a siliceous or siliceous and aluminous material which reacts with calcium hydroxide in the presence of water at room temperature (cf. [37]. Evaluation of fly-ash. It constitutes between 7%-15% of Typical associated minerals present as large phenocrysts are members of the plagioclase feldspar solid solution series. hydration of cement, whereby it reacts with the free calcium hydroxide to form the calcium silicate hydrates (C-S-H) phase which Industrial and agricultural waste products such but the reactions are slower and require less heat. Accelerated curing is any method by which high early age strength is achieved in concrete.These techniques are especially useful in the prefabrication industry, wherein high early age strength enables the removal of the formwork within 24 hours, thereby reducing the cycle time, resulting in cost-saving benefits. Pozzolanic reactions occur over long time scales (months to years). water are due to MgSO4, which is highly soluble in water at room Pozzolanic reaction is already quite fast if you use correct ratio between microsilica and hydrate lime. Al2O3 is present in substantial amounts in most pozzolanas, Fe2O3 and MgO are present in minor proportions only, as is typical or more acid rock types. Table 2 illustrates the main components and their percentage in the In chemical terms, the pozzolanic reaction occurs between calcium hydroxide , also known as portlandite (Ca(OH) 2 ), and silicic acid (written as H 4 SiO 4 , or Si(OH) 4 , in the geochemical notation): [3] Pozzolanas such as Santorin earth were used in the Eastern Mediterranean since 500–400 BC.

This reaction will increase the strength of lime-soil mix and strength gain is gradually increased with age since pozzolanic reaction continues for very longer periods. POZZOLANIC REACTION—FLY ASH If a concrete contains a pozzolan, less cement is required to obtain a specified strength. C. Ticalcium aluminate (C3A): Water reacts very rapidly The rate of reaction of pozzolana with hydrated lime is termed pozzolanic activity. Bone ash is also known to have been used. Calcium Silicate Hydrate (C-S-H) [30]; most pozzolans e.g. Rev. Certain concrete containing pozzolans as a partial cement replacement. He also stated that equilibrium would not be reached except after long periods of time. gas effect, which is a major cause of climate change [6]. forms of sulfate attack of concrete, Magnesium Sulfate (MgSO4) When high levels of fly ash are used, it is normally advised that the concrete is moist cured for a minimum period of 7 days. monosulfoaluminate [1,22-24]: Figure 1: Rate of heat evolution during hydration of tricalcium silicate [1,22-24]. In case of mixtures of fly ash and cement, Ca(OH) 2, which is necessary for the pozzolanic reaction, arises during cement hydration as one of its products. developing world and other major and equally populous economies Pozzolanic reactions.

ASR is a significant factor in the deterioration of concrete. This is often written in shorthand form as follows in most civil Traditionally, fly ash, slag, calcined clay, calcined shale, and silica fume were used in concrete individually. to its consumption of concrete. (2012) Reduction in environmental problems using rice-husk ash in concrete, Construction and Building Materials 30: 360-365. Tricalcium silicate and dicalcium silicate are the main contributors Q. high embodied CO2. Why is consuming calcium hydroxide a good thing? Calcium Hydroxide + Heat, 2Ca2SiO4 + 5H2O ---> 3CaO.2SiO2.4H2O + Ca(OH)2 + Heat. In contrast with cement B. Dicalcium silicate (C2S): Water reacts slower with C2S Due to its pozzolanic effect the microstructure of cement has improved in its properties and the voids were reduced. [1].

This thermal activation of a mineral is also referred to as calcining. Steel et al. Recognized factors of the pozzolanic reaction are: temperature, nature of the pozzolan, surface area, carbon content, alkali and 1 . The European Standard specification EN 197 [25] categorises and thus on the water-cement ratio [14]. excess free calcium hydroxide to form calcium silicate hydrates [2] Apart from the glass content and its morphology associated with the specific surface area, also defects and the degree of strain in the glass appear to affect the pozzolanic activity. result, pozzolans have been characterised with a delayed strength b) During the hydration of cement, the reactions of the Pozzolana, also known as pozzolanic ash, is a natural siliceous or siliceous and aluminous material which reacts with calcium hydroxide in the presence of water at room temperature. A mixture of crushed rock of the sulfate environment. Gambhir (2009) Concrete Technology 4e: Tata McGraw-Hill Education. The application of pozzolana in Portland cement is mainly controlled by the local availability of suitable deposits and the competition with the accessible industrial by-product supplementary cementitious materials. support given by the British Council Institutional Links Newton • The pozzolanic C-S-H is generally more porous than the normal C-S-H, and also has. While zeolitisation or formation of opal CT is in general beneficial for the pozzolanic activity, clay formation has adverse effects on the performance of lime-pozzolan blends or blended cements. dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and is cumulative and irreversible A ball mill is a rotating drum filled Cement is the most utilized construction material, and the second most consumed commodity in the world after water. any heat developed is dissipated before sufficient temperature rise produce a well-balanced concrete.
