Effect of Various Types of Fillers on Mechanical Properties of Concrete (Published)

An experimental study on the effect of inclusion of three different types of fillers on mechanical properties of concrete is carried out. This paper presents the results of laboratory tests of 72 concrete cylindrical specimens of 10 cm diameter and 20 cm length with inclusion of Vf=10% of steel fillers, cast iron fillers and stone powder fillers in the concrete mix. Permeability, Compressive strength and splitting tensile strength are investigated by comparing the density of different types of concrete. Test results demonstrated that the stone powder fillers significantly improve mechanical properties of concrete while the cast iron fillers decline.
