A review on study of partial replacement of cement by metakaolin and glenium b233 in self- compacting concrete.

Main Article Content

Abstract

        Self-compacting concrete (SCC) refers to high strength concrete which will compact under its own weight and does not require external vibration. This paper gives a review on the journals to study the effect of metakaoiln in SCC. The metakaolin is used as a replacement of cement and it is obtained from natural Kaolin clay. Metakaolin helps to increase the compressive strength, spilt tensile strength, flexural strength and also the fresh properties. The use super plasticizer greatly improves pump-ability and the slump value. GLENIUM B233 is a new generation based super plasticizer which is based on modified polycarboxylic ether. The fresh properties such as pump ability and workability and the durability properties of super plasticizer in SCC with metakaolin are discussed.
