This research investigates the performance of concrete incorporating marine sand, seawater, silicomanganese slag, fly ash and silica fume for application in marine environment. The effect of sulphate attack coupled with wetting-drying action on durability and fatigue behavior of concrete is studied using experimental and numerical methods. Through optimization using statistical analysis, a more sustainable concrete, with better strength and durability than the conventional type, is developed which is suitable for direct industrial use.

Mudstones and embedded concretions show differences in lithology-related, but not source-related biomarker distributionsLengger, S.; Melendez, I.; Summons, R.; Grice, Kliti (2017)The mudstones of the Western Australian Gogo Formation harbour numerous carbonate concretions which often contain preserved fossils of Lagerstätte-like quality. These are especially notable in places where the mudstone ...
Effect of fly ash on the service life, carbon footprint and embodied energy of high strength concrete in the marine environmentNath, P.; Sarker, Prabir; Biswas, Wahidul (2017)Durability is one of the primary considerations in designing concrete structures in aggressive environments. This paper presents a study of concretes containing fly ash as 30% and 40% of the total binder in regards to ...
