The Effect Of Rice Husk Ash Used As Supplementary Cementing Material On Strength Of Mortar *

  title={The Effect Of Rice Husk Ash Used As Supplementary Cementing Material On Strength Of Mortar *},
  author={Jayanti Rajput and R. K. Yadav and Rajiv Chandak},
This paper summarizes the experimental studies on strength characteristics of cement mortar in which rice husk ash (RHA) is used as partial replacement of ordinary Portland cement (OPC). Cement mortar paste were proportioned with varying dosages of RHA as partial replacement of OPC in the range of 5%to 30% by weight of cement. The compressive strength test was carried out as per relevant Indian standard code of practice. It has been observed that replacement of cement to the extent of…
