ABSTRACT

Compared with Traditional Concrete (TC), Ecology Porous Concrete (EPC), has a small amount of sand which is porous and good permeable with a certain strength, thus it is widely applied to civil engineering, roads and environmental engineering. Therefore, it is very important to study the basic mechanics nature of EPC. This study has designed 1, 7 and 14 day three different curing times to study uniaxial compressive test of EPC and TC. The tested results show that: (a) Compared with TC, the failure process of EPC tends to be more brittle, (b) The compressive strength of TC increases significantly with the growth of curing time, while the compressive strength of EPC has no significant change with curing time, (c) TC and EPC basically have the same strength reserve coefficient Ks and deformation reserve coefficient Kd with the curing time of 1 day, s d (d) For TC, Ks increases with the growth of curing time, while Kd decreases with it; but Ks and Kd of EPC are not s d s d sensitive to curing time. The above research results are available to related engineering design.
