Experimental Investigation on High Performance Concrete Using Fibre & Non Fibre MixturesAuthor(s): P. R. Kalyana Chakravarthy*, S. Banupriya and G. M. Preethi
The high performance concrete (HPC) are cementious composites with enhanced material properties like high compressive strength, high durability, high fatigue resistance etc. The HPC mix composites are characterized by high grade cement, fly ash, quartz powder and superplasticizer. The water cement ratio (W/C) is generally low, the coarse aggregate and fine aggregate are used. 25% replacement of cement, fly ash and sand by quartz powder in addition of low SP and 0.5% volumetric fraction of nylon fibre to the cubes exhibit the maximum compressive strength, which was determined by the comparison.
