Abstract

Concrete, being an essential material plays a vital role in the construction industry. Curing of concrete is done for 28 days in order to attain the desired properties such as strength and hardening of concrete. Improper curing results in strength loss as well as affects its durability. The present study is to investigate mechanical properties of Self curing concrete by using polyethylene glycol (PEG) and pre-soaked light weight aggregate (LECA). Different percentages of Polyethylene glycol (PEG) such as 0%, 1%, 2%, 3% by weight of cement and LECA as 0%, 10%, 15%, 20% by volume of fine aggregate are carried out. 15% of silica fume is replaced with cement which acts as self curing too. The mix design is carried out for M30 grade concrete. The optimum values obtained for 1% PEG and 15% LECA. Silica Fume is incorporated along with optimum values of PEG and LECA.

Key Words

PEG, LECA, silica fume (SF), mechanical properties
