Abstract

Water Tanks are used for the collection and storage of water for drinking, washing, animal use, irrigation and agricultural purpose. The self -compacted concrete is an innovative product in the civil engineering field in India. M sand is produced by reducing large pieces of aggregate into sand-sized particles. An experimental program was designed in the current work to examine the structural behavior of ferrocement self-compacting concrete using M sand under axial and lateral pressure load. M sand is used in mixtures in an area where the natural sand is not available. The size of M sand is less than 4.75mm. The cost of construction can be controlled by the use of M and is the alternative material for construction. The ferrocement tanks have better corrosion resistance and they have lower maintenance costs than steel tanks. In this method of construction provides durable and high strength water tanks. The main objective of the project is studying the structural behavior of ferrocement self-compacting concrete using M sand under axial and lateral pressure load. The matrix was designed to have high strength, low water to binder ratio, flow characteristics and high durability. Depends a lot of factors, in SCC adding silica fume as a mineral admixture, gelinium as a chemical admixture and using M and is the alternative material for natural sand. In this present investigation, the structural behavior of the ferrocement tanks will be tested in terms of strength, cracking behavior and energy absorption.
