ABSTRACT:
Rice husks are one of the largest readily available but most under-utilized biomass resources, being an ideal fuel for electricity generation. The studies on Rice Husk Ash concretes (RHA) exposed to marine atmosphere for various ages showed that an RHA replacement range of 5% to 7.5 % showed better compressive strengths than other replacements at all ages and for all three grades of concretes. In order to understand the behavior of RHA concretes under various exposure sea water attacks were studied by conducting the tests for two grades of RHA concretes M 20 and M 40 and the results were discussed.
KEYWORDS:
Rice husk ash concrete, compressive strength, marine conditions.
