The Need of Ternary Blended Concrete

Deepa A Sinha, Dr. A. K. Verma, Dr. K. B. Prakash

Abstract :

Extensive research work for decades also is in progress throughout the globe in concrete technology in finding alternative materials which can partially or fully replace ordinary Portland cement (OPC) and which can also meet the requirements of strength and durability aspects. Amongst the many alternative materials tried as partial cement replacement materials, the strength, workability and durability performance of industrial by products like flyash, blast furnace slag, silica fume, metakaolin, rice husk ash, etc., now termed as complimentary cementitious materials (CCM) are quite promising. Subsequently, these have led to the development of binary, ternary and tertiary blended concretes depending on the number of CCM and their combinations used as partial cement replacement materials.The use of appropriately proportioned ternary blended allows the effect of one SCM to compensate for the inherent shortening of another.
