Abstract

[One of the most consumed materials in the world for the development and advancement of humankind is cement. However, the production and consumption of cement has its own disadvantages. The eco-system is affected to a large extent because of the release of toxic gases like CO2 into the environment during the production of cement. The reaction (exothermic) of cement with water leads to enormous heat production. Hence cement replacements known as supplementary cementing materials (SCMs) with high pozzolanic or hydraulic nature are used. Bagasse ash (BA) and rice husk ash (RHA) are the two commonly used SCMs in India. They are obtained as by-products from burning boilers in industries and for heating purposes in rural homes. The properties of both the ashes vary to a large extent. The source of the ash and the different chemical, mineralogical and morphological characteristics are the main reasons for variation in properties. These properties define their suitability for replacement as a partial binding material. This paper investigates on the performance and microstructure characterization of BA and RHA.]
