Volcanic ash has several sustainable advantages as an additive in manufacturing concrete the rocky material, which lies in ample supply around active and inactive volcanoes around the world, is naturally available it is typically considered a waste material, as people typically do not use it for any widespread purpose some volcanic ashes ...

Jan 06, 2015nbsp018332roman concrete derives from a type of volcanic ash called pozzolana. unlike other types of volcanic material, pozzolana contains siliceous silicon dioxide and aluminous elements. this unique composition makes the ash react with other materials. under the right conditions, this ash will bond with specific elements to create a type of cement.

Volcanic ash, in addition to its natural cementing properties, serves the purpose of a fine aggregate that fills the voids between the fine sand aggregate and the cement. in concrete made with volcanic ash as much as 50 percent of the cement may be replaced by the ash

The concrete can be strong but not durable especially when it is subjected to chemical aggressive environments. this research therefore assessed the durability characteristics of portlandcement volcanic ash concrete exposed to chemically aggressive environments.

Apr 05, 2019nbsp018332volcanic ash is a mixture of rock, mineral, and glass particles expelled from a volcano during a volcanic eruption.the particles are very smallless than 2 millimeters in diameter. they tend to be pitted and full of holes, which gives them a low density.along with water vapor and other hot gases, volcanic ash is part of the dark ash column that rises above a volcano when it erupts.

Oct 13, 2019nbsp018332the researchers also found that when they mixed 50 of traditional cement with volcanic ash, which was in powder form in a particle size of 17 micrometres, the embodied energy of the concrete that was formed as a result was reduced to 16. however, the
