Abstract

The effects of addition rice husk ash on the mechanical properties of blended cement containing metakaolin have been investigated experimentally as well as sulphate and chloride resistance of these blends. The influence of aggressive media such as 5% MgSO4 and 5% MgCl2 on the mechanical properties of the prepared pozzolanic cement pastes was studied. The pastes were made from ordinary Portland cement containing 25 wt % metakaolin with partial replacement of metakaolin by different ratios (0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 wt %) of rice husk ash. All cement pastes immersed in tap water for 28 days (zero time) then immersed in aggressive media for 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. The mechanical properties were measured by determination of the compressive strength. Total sulphate and chloride contents at each curing time in the aggressive mediums up to one year as well as their physico-chemical properties were monitored periodically and analyzed by XRD, DTA and visual inspection. The results showed that, the partial replacement of metakaolin by 10 wt % rice husk ash improves the resistance of hardened cement pastes against 5% MgSO4 attack. Whereas 15 wt % rice husk ash improves the resistance against 5% MgCl2 attack.
