Abstract: In today’s world, many researchers use either industrial or agricultural waste product of invaluable value as a source of cementinous material in the construction industry. Waste reduction is a priority when recycling industrial and agricultural waste from society. Sugarcane bagasse (SCBA) is a fibrous waste from the sugar industry. In this experimental study, bagasse ash has been physically and chemically characterized and partially replaced with cement, which is OPC, in proportions of 7% and 14% by weight, and thereafter it is added in mixture to make concrete. Fresh concrete tests such as slump cone test and hardened concrete test such as compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength were carried out at the age of 7 and 28 days. The result obtained shows the mechanical properties of the concrete for different percentages of bagasse ash, glass fiber along with effect of colloidal silica in concrete.
Keywords: Bagasse ash, Colloidal silica, Compressive strength, Flexural strength, Split tensile strength.
