Gaurav Chand is a Second Year PhD student in School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at The University of Manchester under the supervision of Dr Achintha and Prof. Wang. His work is focused on Sustainable production of concrete from waste glass.
In the present study, SCMs like metakaolin, pumice powder and silica fume are used as partial replacement with cement by coating the surface of RCA, to fill the gaps and pores of adhered mortar present on it. Prior to this step, the RCA is treated with 0.1 M Hydrocloric (HCl) acid solution, in order to weaken the adhered mortar present on its surfa...
A paradigm shift is observed in the production of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) due to its high carbon emission worldwide and the need for adopting sustainability in construction industry. For the same, newer practices have been proposed, which includes the production of sustainable cement whose escalating demand is associated with utilization of...
The present study proposes a sustainable solution to the non-eco-friendly technique of cement production, without compromising the quality of produced concrete. In the primary stages of the investigation undertaken, cement is replaced with different cementitious materials like glass powder, metakaolin and silica fume at different percentages by wei...
The wastes generated from manufacturing industry are increasing at an alarming rate and causing severe threats to our environment’s sustainability. However, the strategic utilization of industrial waste in construction industry has the potential to solve the problems of waste disposal, unsystematic landfills and it may also reduce the demand for na...
In recent world of construction industry, a slower pace of development is being recorded. It is observed that continuous use of same conventional methods in construction industry has led to decrease in innovative ideas. However, recently many techniques have been proposed to reduce construction time and using different waste materials have made it...
In today’s world, rapid production of commodities has led to increase in unnatural growth of solid waste materials. The basic issue with these solid wastes are their disposal. In most of the open literature, it is recommended by researchers that different solid waste materials can be used as a binder or filler in construction industry. Moreover, ut...
The aim of this study is to investigate the benefits of Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) in building constructions. The use of FRC as an advanced alternative to normal concrete has obtained its advantage in different applications like in buildings, concrete roads, segmental linings and beam column joints. Moreover, to control cracks in pre stressed...
In the recent world of construction and demolition (C&D) waste, a huge quantity of solid waste is produced which degrade the quality of our environment. Utilization of construction and demolition (C&D) waste solves the problem of solid waste management as well as saves the environment. Few literatures recommended that the recycled aggregate concret...
