The possibility of using mineral admixtures as a replacement for cement may reduce the carbon dioxide emission, which causes global warming and climatic changes on the environment. The objective of this study is to investigate the properties of early strength concrete produced with a constant replacement of alccofine (i.e. 25% by mass) and a new generation of chemical admixture that is Polycarboxylate ether. The constant dosage of alccofine and different proportions of polycarboxylate ethers are mixed in concrete and tested for workability and mechanical properties of concrete. Response surface method was applied to predict, validate and optimize the experimental data using regression equation. The results show that the performance of concrete improves with the addition of alccofine and Polycarboxylate ether into concrete.

This paper analyses the structural behavior of reinforced self-compacting concrete beams under two-point loading. A total number of five beams were cast with varying quantities of alccofine (i.e., 0, 5, 10, and 15%) and constant dosage of fly ash (i.e., 25%) and tested for examining the load-deflection curves and ultimate moment carrying capacity of reinforced self-compacting concrete beams. From obtained experimental results, it was found that the load-carrying capacity was increased when the beam with the addition of alccofine and fly ash is compared with the normal concrete beam. The experimental obtained ultimate strength values were compared with theoretically predicted values using IS 456-2000, ACI 318-11, and CSA A23.3-04 codes.
