A study on mechanical properties of concrete with incorporation of CO2
Dharshana S, Rekha K
Concrete is one of the most used construction materials in the world. In addition, concrete is the second most consumed substance in the world after water. Approximately ten billion tons of concrete is produced every year. Annual production represents one ton for every individual on the planet. There are some negative impacts of more production of concrete like continuous extensive extraction of aggregate from natural resources will lead to its depletion and ecological imbalance. Apart from this production of cement release approximately 8% of Carbon-dioxide into the environment. A step for finding a elucidation for the above mention mess, Carbon Capture utilization storage technique is fast growing solution in this modern world. For enhancing this concept a dry-ice which is the solid form of CO2 is added into the concrete at various percentage (5%, 10%, 20%) in an open chamber. Mechanical properties of concrete with CO2 such as compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength were tested and the results were discussed.
