This paper reports the corrosivity and leaching behavior of CLSM made using two different industrial wastes i.e. bottom ash from an incineration facility and quarry dust. The leachate samples were derived from fresh and hardened CLSM mixtures, and studied for leaching and electrical resistivity. The release of various contaminants and the consequent(More)
The cementing efficiency factor k of a pozzolan is defined as the number of parts of cement in a concrete mixture that could be replaced by one part of pozzolan without changing the property being investigated, which is usually the compressive strength. This concept was proposed by Smith [1] and was initially applied in rational proportioning of fly ash(More)
This paper reports on a two-step approach for optimally determining the location and severity of damage in beam structures under flexural vibration. The first step focuses on damage location detection. This is done by defining the damage index called relative wavelet packet entropy (RWPE). The damage severities of the model in terms of loss of stiffness are(More)
Incineration of industrial waste produces large quantities of bottom ash which are normally sent to secured landfill, but is not a sustainable solution. Use of bottom ash in engineering applications will contribute to sustainability and generate revenue. One way of using the industrial waste incineration bottom ash is in controlled low-strength material(More)
More than 167 million tons of slag was produced worldwide in 1996 [1]. Ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) is a low performance cementitious material, which can achieve high compression strength when an alkaline activator is used. However, Glukhovsky [2] had already made crucial investigations about the activation of GGBFS. This author [3](More)
