Abstract
Main objective is to study, the effect of admixture (PEG 400) on self compacting concrete in terms of compressive strength, split tensile strength and the flexural strength by varying the percentage of PEG by weight of cement from 0% to 2% and by normal curing method. The present study involves the use of shrinkage reducing admixture polyethylene glycol (PEG 400) in concrete which helps in self curing and helps in better hydration and hence strength. With the growing scale of the project conventional curing methods have proven to be costly affairs as there are many practical issues & they have been replaced by self curing agents in inaccessible areas, vertical structures & water scarce areas. Scope of the study is to study the effect of PEG400 on self curing, self compaction concrete as an alternate for conventional water curing method.
