Abstract

Environmental friendly and high performance concrete is very import for the applications in sewage and water treatment industry. Using mineral additives such as fly ash and silica fume has been proven an effective approach to improve concrete properties. This paper reports a study of the effect of using both polymer and metakaolin additives together on the mechanical and durability properties of concrete. Different proportions of the combination using two different polymers, metakaolin and recycled fiber reinforcement have been studied. The effects of water to cement ratio and the curing methods have also been compared. At last an optimized mixture and curing method has been suggested.
