Engineering assignment: Experimental setup and Methodology

 

Methodology:

(1)    Proportioning of 1 : 3 mortar mix  containing 15 %  fly ash and 15 % silica fume by weight of  cement as mineral admixtures  for different levels of fibre  addition – 0.5%, 1%, 1.5%, 2% and  2.5% by volume

(2)    Casting cubes  and prisms as per ASTM standards

                size of cubes 70mm*70mm*70mm and size of prams 40mm*40mm*160mm

(3)    Testy for 28 day compressive and flexural strength.

(4)    For the mix with maximum strength durability tests such as sorptivity , rapid chloride penetration test,  carbonation, will be conducted
