Abstract

This paper reports the results of an investigation carried out to understand the influence of a Microwave Incinerated Rice Husk Ash (MIRHA) on the hydration process of foamed concrete. The experimental work was designed using the Taguchi method for optimization purposes. The loss on ignition method was used to determine the non-evaporable water (NEW) contents at various ages of hydration namely 3, 7, 28, 90, and 180 days. It was observed that 5% MIRHA foamed concrete showed higher NEW contents than the plain foamed concrete, indicating that MIRHA facilitated enhancement in foamed concrete hydration.
