  • Abstract:
    Laboratory study on the enhanced engineering properties obtained by using silica fume as an admixture to concrete. Silica fume is used as an admixture to concrete to improve the engineering properties. Additions of silica fume improve the bond between concrete and steel reinforcing bars. The authors describe a laboratory study that explores the ultimate pullout load of steel reinforcing bars from concrete enhanced with silica fume
