Evaluation of Strength Characteristics of Steel Slag Hydrated Matrix

Murmu, Meena (2009) Evaluation of Strength Characteristics of Steel Slag Hydrated Matrix. MTech thesis.



The world needs an environmentally friendly construction material because of the desire to reduce CO2 emissions, save nonrenewable energy resources, provide aesthetically pleasing and healthy surroundings and at the same time minimize waste. Fortunately we have just such a material - concrete, and most of the essential research has been done to enable concrete to fill this role. A new environment-friendly concrete is called "steel slag hydrated matrix", consisting mainly of steelmaking slag, ground granulated blast furnace slag, fly ash, and water was developed recently. Steel slag hydrated matrix has the features like made from 100% recycled resources, same strength performance as ordinary concrete, excellent wear resistance, low alkaline dissolution, and excellent growth habitat for befouling organisms in marine environments. In this project work all attempt has been made to get an alternative material to concrete using mostly waste products of steel industry. The present technique of producing concrete also involves no burning of fossil fuels, which is otherwise used for manufacturing of cement. This also helps in emission of CO2 and protects environmental pollution.
