Effects of magnetic water on fracture parameters of self-compacting lightweight concrete
What is it about?
Test variables consisted of the magnetic field intensity (MFI) that treated on water and water to cement (w/c) ratio. For this purpose, eight mix compositions with various MFI and two w/c ratios of 0.37 and 0.42 were considered. In each w/c ratio, the nominal maximum aggregate size and all mix designs were constant and only the magnetic fields changed in four levels. Three-point bending tests were conducted on 96 notched beams, and the results were analyzed by means of the size effect method. Satisfactory results were achieved in the fracture parameters and the mechanical properties of SCLC.
Why is it important?
There are some researches on the use of magnetic water (MW) in the production of concrete. However, most of them have usually focused on the mechanical properties and workability of normal concrete. It is worth adding that although many studies have been done on the mechanical properties of self-compacting lightweight (SCLC), very few of them have focused on the fracture parameters of SCLC.
