INTRODUCTION • No alternative for OPC in construction industry for production of concrete. • Hence it is inevitable either to search for another material or partly replace it by some other material. . • Increasing cost of cement. • Emission of CO2 to the atmosphere which leads to green house effect and global warning. • An alternative or a supplementing for cement should lead to global sustainable development and lowest possible environmental impact.

non. Fibres : RECRON is a fibre which reduces permeability.sticky texture that makes finishing easier. Aggregates: Fine aggregates are used for the preparation of mix. Super plasticizer: It is characterized by lower water cement ratio and enhances the durability. Cement : OPC for making self compacting concrete. The super fine size and high pozzolanic reactivity make silica fume a basic ingredient for concrete requiring high strength and durability.MATERIALS • Silica fume: It has become one of the necessary ingredients for making high strength and high performance concrete. cracking and increase the durability. • • • • • . It is suited for making thinner sections. which gives fresh concrete a creamy. Metakaolin: It is a fine and highly reactive material.

Specimens subjected to the loads perpendicular to the plane of vibration are shown to give consistent results where as specimens loaded parallel to the plane of vibration gave low results. Alhozaimy. Mirza [13] (1996) studied on mechanical properties of polypropylene fiber reinforced concrete and the effects of pozzolanic materials. Positive interactions were also detected between fibers and pozzolanas. Soroushian & F. . P. M. Polypropylene fibers were observed to have no statistically significant effects on compressive or flexural strength of concrete.REVIEW OF LITERATURE A. Potrzebowski[14] (1983) researched on the splitting test applied to steel fiber reinforced concrete. while flexural toughness and impact resistance showed an increase in the presence of polypropylene fibers.

This paper examines the determinants of durability of autoclaved Hatschek-made cellulose fiber reinforced cements (CFRC’s) in the various US environments and reviews their performance.

Roofing sheets of industrial sheds have been observed to fail in uplift under extreme wind conditions as in a cyclone. . A. Cooke wrote a report on “Durability of Autoclaved Cellulose Fiber Cement Composites”. Associate Member and Dr M S Mathews. This paper presents the research carried out to study the behaviour under static uplift loads of asbestos cement and galvanised iron corrugated roofing sheet systems used in India using gravity load method. The paper concludes that 50 years durability for CFRC is a reasonable expectation providing that it is selected.

The highest level of compressive strength and modulus of elasticity and the lowest level of ISA were produced by SF concrete under water curing and at temperature of 35°C. They reviewed property about FRC rather than on historical reporting. Data collected also revealed that. it is possible to produce HPC at relatively high water-binder ratios. under controlled curing conditions. . Safiuddin and Mahmud[17] (2000) worked on Development of high performance concrete using silica fume at relatively high water-binder ratios. It discusses commonly applied terminology and models of mechanical behavior that form a basis for understanding material performance without presenting mathematical details.Zollo[12] (1997) overviewed on fiber reinforced concrete over the 30 years of development.

how frequently they occur and especially how soon the first damages are observed after mounting the sheets.Ongoing project: Under the leadership of Klavs Feilberg Hansen a group is carrying out a project on “Corrugated fibre reinforced cement sheets for roof covering”. This project aims to get an overview of the size of the problem which damage of corrugated fibre-reinforced cement sheets poses. . what types of damage occurs.

.AIM OF THE PROJECT With the backdrop of literature review:  It’s attempted to determine the pozzolanic materials as ingredient in FRC roofing elements.  Concentration will be on porosity and elastic modulus and flexural behaviour of the FRC roofing sheets with cement replacement materials.

SCOPE OF PROJECT  By adding the pozzolanic materials as cement replacements. .  Pozzolanic materials have the capability of increasing workability by decreasing water cement ratio. usage of cement reduces.  Because of the fineness of pozzolanic materials it enables to obtain thin sections.  Because of its low cost it can be used in low cost buildings as roofing elements.

 Scm’s also lowers the susceptibility to dissolution and leaching.  These pozzolanic materials also increase the water tightness. .Contd…. Due to less density of pozzolanic materials. when these are used in casting materials its density also reduces.

Young’s modulus.LABORATORY TESTS Tests conducted on moulds made of obtained mix: Compression test Capillary absorption test Porosity test Split tensile strength test Tests on roofing elements: Bending test to determine ductility. Flexural rigidity. .
