Role of Rice Husk Ash in Concrete

Author Name : Devender Kumar Beniwal

ABSTRACT This paper summarizes the research work on the properties of Rice Husk Ash (RHA) when used as partial replacement for Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) in concrete.OPC was replaced with RHA by weight at 5%, 10% and 15%. 0% replacement served as the control. Compressive Strength test was carried out on hardened 150mm concrete cubes after at 1,3,7,28,45 & 56 days curing in water. The results revealed that the Compacting factor decreased as the percentage replacement of OPC with RHA increased. The compressive strength of the hardened concrete also decreased with increasing OPC replacement with RHA. It is recommended that further studies be carried out together more facts about the suitability of partial replacement of OPC with RHA in concrete.
