High Performance Concrete,Silica Fume,Metakaolin,


The reason for this investigation is to create HPC using locally accessible ingredients in Pakistan. The trial study incorporates the utilization of silica fume and Metakaolin mostly. The mixture of preliminaries is made utilizing various volumes of the local supplementary cementitious materials SCM and aggregates to deliver HPC. Different tests are carried out, for example, compressive strength, Rapid chloride Penetration test and Concrete cured in dilute sulphuric acid solution are assessed. The water to cement proportion was kept as .5. Every concrete samples have 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 percent cement replacing with metakaolin and silica fume halfway. The compression strength tests are done on 28 and 90 days of cured specimens. The rapid chloride permeability test and compressive strength on the concrete cylinder when place in dilute sulphuric acid solution is done after 28 days. The outcomes appeared by utilizing MK and SF in concrete improves the mechanical properties of the concrete with different degrees up to some level. The compressive quality of the concrete cylinder is maxed on 15% cement replacing with SCM. At 5% MK and SF cement replacement the strength of the concrete samples cured in dilute H2SO4 after 28 days shows rising in the result and its strength decreases at 10% cement replacement with SCMs than its strength increased again and gives max compressive strength with 15% replacement then strength reduces again at 20% cement additional with MK and SF moderately. The charge passing rate is maxed for normal concrete samples of RCPT. There is an inverse relationship between the charge passage and cement replacement. The Charge passage is decreased by increasing the quantity of cement additional with SCMs. 20% cement additional has the least charge level and is the best mix among all.
