STUDY ON EFFECT OF MAGNETIC FIELD TREATED WATER ON FRESH AND HARDENED CONCRETE PROPERTIES
Magnetic Water, Workability, Compressive Strength, Curing Ages
This study involves the investigation of magnetic water on the workability, consistency, compaction factor and compressive strength of concrete. The water is magnetized with the help of 0.5hp motor having an intensity of 0.9 Tesla at its inlet pipe. Both the physical and chemical properties of normal water and magnetic water have to be studied. Concrete samples are then prepared by using magnetic water and ordinary water for mixing and cured with ordinary tap water. The concrete cubes are casted for M20 grade and tested for 7, 14, 21 and 28 days respectively. The main scope of the study is to improve the qualities of normal tap water as per Indian standards after magnetisation and to reduce the water cement ratio thereby reducing the consumption of cement content and curing days.
