Abstract

Generation of solid waste materials from various sources and durability performance of hydraulic structures under environmental loadings (aggressive substances) has become a worldwide problem. Present paper investigated the durability performance of engineered cementitious composite (ECC) mortar containing stone slurry powder (SSP). SSP was used as partial subrogation of micro silica sand (MSS) and fine sand (FS) by 25 % and 50% for each type of sand. Electrical resistivity (ER), compressive and tensile behaviour of various mixes were studied experimentally under chloride, sulphate and chloride-sulphate combined environmental conditions. The results obtained from various properties revealed that performance of fully MSS and FS containing ECC mixes was affected under aggressive substances at initial stages. The findings demonstrate that ECC containing SSP was durable and maintains better mechanical performance than fully MSS and FS containing mixes under different environmental exposures, which can be applied for improving the performance of hydraulic structures under aggressive environments
