The innovation of use of bottom ash on green concrete
MetadataShow full item record
This research presents a study of the resistance to carbonation, compressive strength and porosity of concrete containing ground bottom ash. Three different of bottom ash finenesses viz., coarse bottom ash (GBA-1), ground medium bottom ash (GBA-2) and ground fine bottom ash (GBA-3) were used for the study. Portland cement (CT) is partially replaced with ground bottom ash at 0-40% by weight of the bottom ash. The water to binder ratio was kept constant at 0.5. Compressive strength, porosity and resistant to carbonation of concrete were investigated. Fine bottom ash has a high potential to be used as a good cementitious material. The results show that the compressive strength and low porosity of concrete improves substantially with partial replacement of Portland cement with fine bottom ash. Concrete mix cement containing 10-20% of fine bottom ash can be used to make cementitious materials. The use of finer bottom ash produces concrete mix with good strength and resistance to carbonation.
