Experimental Study on Pervious Concrete Using Fly Ash and Rice Husk Ash

Author : Shwetha J 1 2

Date of Publication :25th April 2022

Abstract: Pervious concrete is a mixture of gravel or granite stone, cement, water, little to no sand (fine aggregate). Allowing water to pass through concrete having high void or porosity is known as pervious concrete. When pervious concrete is used for paving, the open cell structures allow storm water to filter through the pavement and into the underlying soils. In other words, pervious concrete helps in protecting the surface of the pavement and its environment. In the present study, the effects on compressive strength of pervious concrete by replacement of cement by different percentages of fly ash and rice husk ash has been investigated. The goal is to achieve a maximum compressive strength characteristics of the pervious concrete by replacing cement by Rice husk ash and Fly ash which are waste products so that carbon-di-oxide emission is reduced using above seen while more in many a times of cement. This will be accomplished through extensive experiments on test cubes created for this purpose. Experiments include specific gravity tests, compression test
