Volume 7 No.2 July-December 2018 pp 45-48
Concrete is a mixture of cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water. Globally concrete is the backbone for the large development of infrastructure. With the experimental investigations and proven results mineral admixtures and other waste materials are used in the concrete successively. In this present experimental study, the flexural strength of beam for both the conventional concrete and steel slag glass fibre reinforced fly ash concrete is compared for M30 grade of concrete. The test to be done is having 1% of glass fibre to the volume of concrete, steel slag is added at a constant percentage of (30%) by weight of fine aggregate throughout this experimental study. The mineral admixture fly ash has been added at three different percentages (ie; 5%, 10% and 15%) by weight of cement. Flexural strength of beam is identified.
