Abstract

Concrete, as we all know, is used in a variety of applications such as construction, roadways, and so on. We create concrete to meet the needs of the project, and qualities such as compressive strength, durability, and fire resistance vary between structures and roadways. We strive to use the cheapest material that is readily available around the construction sites to improve the quality of concrete.

When the concrete is poured, several processes (both endothermic and exothermic) occur. When Concrete is brought into the environment, the temperature has a significant impact on it, causing cracks in the concrete, a loss of compressive strength, and concrete bleeding, among other things. When concrete is brought into the environment, it undergoes an endothermic reaction, which means it absorbs heat from the environment. As a result, the temperature inside the building rises, and various studies are being conducted to manage this.

We will employ paraffin wax and waste copper slag in our experiments in this study article, and we will look at the thermal characteristics and compressive strength of concrete

Keyphrases: compressive strength, Concrete, Paraffin wax, waste copper slag
