Mid-Temperature Thermal Effects on Properties of Mortar Produced with Waste Rubber as Fine Aggregate
MetadataShow full item record
This laboratory study aims to investigate curing and thermal effect on mechanical properties of mortar produced with waste rubber as fine aggregate. For this purpose, three type of rubber content was used in mix design like 0%, 10% and 20%. Mortar specimens were produced with 520 kg cement. The type of used cement is CEM I 42.5 R ordinary Portland cement and w/c ratio were kept at 0.485 level at all mix design. Rilem sand was used in the mortar. Rolled crumb waste rubber was used in the composition and the grain size of used waste rubber was between 1-4 mm. The effect of curing age was evaluated on compressive strength and abrasion resistance on the base of three distinct rubber content. Moreover, the compressive strength results were evaluated with two different temperature levels, i.e. 1500C and 2000C and three different curing age condition, i.e. 3 days, 7 days and 28 days. As a result, it was observed that there is a constant decrease at early curing age of mortar in terms of compressive strength, but there is a sharp decrease at 28-days curing condition. As for abrasion resistance, it was determined that abrasion loss was increased in the early curing age of specimens. However, abrasion loss was decreased with increasing rubber content.
