Description

This paper presents the outcome of a study conducted to exhibit the effect of micro-silica sand and mortar sand on fresh, mechanical and durability properties of Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECCs). ECC is a ductile concrete characterized by strain hardening and multiple-cracking behavior under tension and shear. This study used locally available aggregates instead of standard micro-silica sand to produce cost-effective, sustainable and green ECC mixtures to be used for construction applications. ECCs prepared by both types of sands exhibited almost similar behaviour in terms of fresh, mechanical and durability properties which indicated the viability of producing ECC mixtures with mortar sand. In addition, the behaviour of a standard ECC can still be achieved when producing ECCs made of high volume fly ash (up to 70% cement replacement) along with local mortar sand. By employing results of this research, correlations were derived between mechanical and durability properties.
