Copper slag concrete admixed with polypropylene fibres

Vijayaprabha Chakrawarthy, Brindha Darmar, Ashokkumar Elangovan

Abstract

A sustainable concrete design has become an imperative requirement for the present-day concrete industry. A part of an extensive research project aimed at studying possibilities for using copper slag (CS) and polypropylene (PP) fibres in concrete is presented and analysed. Measurements were conducted to investigate the workability, density, compressive strength, tensile strength, and micro-structural properties of concrete, as well as the ultimate load carrying capacity of reinforced-concrete beams made of this type of concrete.

Keywords
copper slag, polypropylene (PP) fibres, waste replacement , mechanical properties, concrete microstructure
