Performance of SIFCON with Steel Slag

11 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

Slurry infiltrated fibrous concrete (SIFCON) is a new and unique type of high performance concrete invented by Lankard in 1979, containing high percentage of fiber about 6% to 20% by volume. SIFCON possesses high strength as well as large ductility and has excellent potential for structural application. The matrix in SIFCON has no coarse aggregate but high cementitious content. The aim of study is to evaluate the performance of SIFCON mortar with lower fiber percentage and to minimize the fine aggregate usage by replacing it with industrial waste i.e. steel slag. Thereby, it also helps in effective disposal of industrial waste and helps in mitigating environmental pollution. The main objective of this study is to determine the effect of partial replacement of sand with steel slag on the mechanical properties of SIFCON mortar. The experimental program was carried out with 2%, 3% and 4% of fiber content by volume combined with replacement of sand by steel slag in proportion of 10% and 20% by weight. For this purpose, compressive strength, flexural strength, split tension and impact strength of SIFCON specimens were tested after 7 and 28 days of curing, yielding positive results.
