Abstract

This research work is carried out to study the different proportion effects on mechanical and chemical properties of high strength concrete (HSC) with the inclusion of Basalt fiber (BF) and Metakaolin (MK). As per IS-456:2000 a concrete which Characteristic compressive strength is greater than 55 N/mm2 is called High strength concrete. The expected growth of cement consumption as per the Indian brand equity foundation is 328 Million Newton (MN) ton but as per the existing development of infrastructure growth, it increased up to 337 MN ton which represents how our infrastructure framework develops definitely. A chopped basalt fiber (BF) is a single material made from melting crushed basalt rocks. And calcination clay in the form of metakaolin (MK) are used for this research work in this research BF cast with supplementary cementitious material MK. Cement is replace in the range accordingly in 3 different concrete sets using 0.5% BF with MK 0%, 5%, and 10%, 1.0% BF with MK 0%, 5%, and 10%, 1.5% BF with MK 0%, 5%, and 10% by weight of cement were designed at single water cement ratio (w/c ratio) is 0.33. The research focuses on compressive strength and water absorption test that how quality improvement in the concrete mixes with BF & MK is improved. Besides, a decrease within the compressive strength was observed in the specimens with fiber addition, even though a significant variation of water absorption was taken note when compared with the conventional concrete.
