Lightweight Aerated Concrete Incorporating Various Percentages of Slag and PFA

Noor Ahmed Memon, Salihuddin Radin Sumadi and Mahyuddin Ramli

Abstract:
The present experimental study evaluates the performance of lightweight aerated concrete incorporating various dosages of Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS) and Pulverized Fuel Ash (PFA) as partial cement replacement. Performance of the aerated concrete is investigated in terms of ultimate compressive strength, density and strength development. Eight mixes are developed and tested at the age of 7, and 28 days. Specimen were cured in water (initially for 14 days) and open air (at room temperature) to examine the effect of the curing regime. The results of the study show that the mixes produced by replacing cement with slag (GGBFS) and PFA are comparable with the mix without cement replacement. It is also observed from the study that the cement-slag-PFA based lightweight aerated concrete can be produced of adequate compressive strength and capable to apply as lightweight non-load bearing concrete units.
