Abstract:

In Recent years, construction industry has sparked as one of the developments on demand in the society, which is mainly due to the growing population. The major part of the construction is based on concrete mixture. During its survival, it is exposed to many environmental calamities along with some internal problems. This demands a necessity to develop resistant ingredients for the purpose in the aggressive environment of food industries, chemical, mineral and many other industries. There is necessary in the development of chemically resistant materials for the use in the aggressive environment of food manufacturing, mining, mineral processing, chemical, and other industries. The most durable building material is concrete that determines the life of a structure. The durability of concrete is threatened and may be lost by external affects. Some of the factors like thawing and freezing, corrosion of steel may leads to damage the concrete. There is a tendency to suffer damage that is micro cracks and spalling when concrete is treated with wet or moist medium. Because of various climatic conditions, concrete need to face lot of problems to withstand i.e to maintain pH level (carbonation or acidification due to different types of gases exist in the surroundings which leads to damage of the concrete). There is also problem for marine structures which are continuously treated with salt water attack. This may lead to salt crystallization and scaling damage. In this investigation, an experiment is done to study the nature of M20 grade concrete with blended cement in the presence of neutral salt KCl with concentrations of 0.5,2,4,6,8,10,12 and 14 by adding water for desired concrete.
