Abstract:

Replacement of cement with mineral admixtures like fly ash to reduce the greenhouse effect and use of fibres to overcome various deficiencies in concrete are gaining importance in the past years. Basalt fibre is an inorganic material from volcanic rock and is comparatively new in the industry. The performance of concrete with the inclusion of 0.1%, 0.15%, 0.3% and 0.45% chopped basalt fibre along with 35% cement replaced with fly ash is conferred in the study. The fundamental properties of concrete like workability, compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength are investigated. The experimental investigation indicates a lower strength for fly ash concrete at the early ages with an increasing trend at the later ages. The addition of basalt fibres accelerates the strength gain compensating the reduction in early strength. The failure pattern of basalt fibre reinforced concrete depicts good bonding and crack resistance property of the fibre.
