THE INFLUENCE OF SILICA FUME ON THE STRENGTH OF THE CEMENT-AGGREGATE BOND

A small scale flexure test for the determination of cement-aggregate bond strength is described. Cylindrical test specimens were prepared by drilling cores in a perpendicular direction through slabs of rock against which mortar had been cast. A special casting procedure eliminated many sources of experimental variation and allowed the bond strengths of different mortars and rock types to be compared directly. Long term tests were conducted by coring the mortar/aggregate slabs at a number of curing times and coefficients of variation of 5 to 10 percent for bond and mortar strengths were obtained. The effect on cement-aggregate bond strength of partial cement replacement by silica fume was evaluated for a number of aggregate types.
