Abstract

This paper reports an experimental investigation on the influence of Rice Husk Ash (RHA)and Expanded Poly Styrene (EPS) on the mechanical properties and the properties of fresh concrete of the produced RHA and EPS blended concrete. EPS aggregates were used to replace coarse aggregates by volume with an aim to decrease the unit weight. Locally produced RHA was used to replace cement by its weight with an aim to increase workability. Mixture proportioning was performed to produce target strength of 65 MPa. Past researches regarding complete replacement of coarse aggregates with EPS aggregates have shown strength of less than 10 MPa. Hence, our aim is to achieve strength of 25-30 MPa thereby utilizing environmentally sustainable concrete in the rapidly developing low cost housing sectors of developing countries
