Özet

In this study, the high flexural parameter properties of Slurry Infiltrated Fiber Concrete (SIFCON) were examined, as was the use of metakaolin and fly ash with PC CEM I 52.5 R (White Cement). 5 series were prepared and metakaolin and fly ash replaced PC CEM I 52.5 R at 25% and 50%. In this study, while researching White Cement in the production of SIFCON samples, metakaolin which is easy to obtain in kaolin-rich soils, and fly ash, which is a waste material, were also evaluated to reduce CO2 emission in cement production. 5% of steel fiber was used in all series and the results of 7 and 28 days flexural and compressive strengths and ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) were examined. Given the 28-day test period, a strength increase was observed in metakaolin-added samples, while lower results were obtained in fly ash-added samples since fly ash was not yet completely hydrated. After the 200, 400, and 600 degrees C high-temperature tests, the results of flexural and compressive strengths, UPV, and weight loss were examined. The increase in strength after 300 degrees C can be caused by drying shrinkage of the matrix, whose C-S-H structure is not yet intact, and compression of the fiber wall. The conversion from Ca(OH)(2) to CaO begins at about 400 degrees C, and the C-S-H structure is quickly destroyed as it approaches 600 degrees C. SIFCON samples have the highest mechanical and durability properties by replacing the metakaolin with White Cement by 25%. The lowest results were obtained by replacing the fly ash with White Cement by 50%.
