Abstract
The aim of this study is to find out the compressive strength of concrete using water soluble polyethylene glycol 600 as self-curing agent in M40 grade mix. The function of self-curing agent is to reduce the water evaporation from concrete. The use of self-curing admixtures is very important from the point of view that water resources are getting valuable every day. Bagasse ash in 5,10,15and 20% is replaced to cement in self curing concrete and for each % of Bagasse ash 1, 1.5 and 2% of polyethylene glycol 600 is added. The average compressive strength at the end of 7,14 and 28 days is found out for various % of Bagasse ash and Polyethylene glycol600. The compressive strength is compared with conventional self-curing concrete. The study reveals that the addition of 20% of Bagasse ash to cement and 1% of polyethylene glycol600 shows a better compressive strength then the other concrete mix studied
