ACI-SGI Concrete Fest 2020

    • National Level ECO Concrete Competition on 11-12 March 2020


      In order to follow the current orientation of the concrete industry, this student competition aims to promote the idea of environmental performance in concrete mix design as an important aspect of sustainability. Teams thus have the mission to develop an innovative concrete mixture, which will have the lowest possible environmental impacts while maintaining optimal mechanical and durability performances. To achieve this goal, teams are encouraged to seek out and use local resources of concrete materials such as supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), alternative SCMs, fillers, recycled and alternative aggregates, and other environmentally friendly materials.

      RULES

    • Eligibility

    • Each team must consist of students in Diploma or Undergraduate or Postgraduate students of a college or university at the time of the competition. All members of a team must be from the same college.

      A team is limited to three individuals.

      Each team must have a supervising faculty advisor who will see that the student team complies with the rules of the competition.

      Teams will receive confirmation of registration from SGU and must be sure to submit all required paperwork and information by the deadlines noted.

    • Materials

    • All materials and mix design(s) used for the competition have to be clearly described in the written report. Material requirements indicated below should be closely followed, as teams failing to do so will be penalized, possibly with disqualification from the competition.

      Portland cement satisfying IS269:1989, IS8112:1989, and IS12269:1987 must be used. Commercial blended cement is not allowed.

      Supplementary cementitious materials (SCM), such as fly ash and natural pozzolans meeting IS6491:1972, silica fume meeting ASTM C1240, or slag cement meeting IS 15388:2003, can be incorporated to the concrete mixtures but as separate products from the portland cement.

      Alternative supplementary cementitious materials (ASCMs) can be used in the concrete mixtures. If ASCMs do not meet any IS standard, the team shall provide a Material Technical Data Sheet (MTDS) for the corresponding material.

      Mineral fillers, complying with IS standard, are also allowed.

      Chemical admixtures meeting IS 9103:1999 or C1017 may be used.

      The blend of aggregates used to produce concrete mixture may contain natural, crushed, by-product, co-product or recycled fine and coarse aggregates, as defined in Table 1. The mass percentage of the replacement by recycled aggregates shall be calculated from a comparison of the total mass of all recycled aggregates in the oven-dry condition to the total mass of the concrete (based on yielded proportions).

      To qualify the type of cementitious materials or aggregate as natural, co-product, by-product, main-product, recycled or crushed material shall correspond to the brief definition shown in Table 1.

      Table 1: Type of cementitious materials and aggregates

       

    • Concrete mix design

    • Mix design requirements indicated below shall be closely followed, as teams failing to do so will be penalized, possibly with disqualification from the competition.

    • Water-to-binder ratio

    • The water-to-binder ratio (by mass) is fixed to 0.43. The binder shall include all type portland or hydraulic cement, SCMs, ASCMs, natural pozzolans and mineral fillers, that are used in the mix.

    • Binder content

    • maximum of 40% of the mass of the binder materials can be replaced by non-Portland cement material (e.g. SCMs, ASCMs, mineral fillers, etc.).

    • Aggregate proportioning

    • The aggregate(s) shall constitute a minimum of 50% of the total mass of concrete mixtures meeting aggregate requirements described in IS Code. This percentage shall be calculated based on a comparison of the total mass of all aggregates in surface saturated dry (SSD) condition, to the total mass of the concrete (based on yielded proportions). The contribution of coarse aggregates (aggregates with a minimum size of 5 mm) mass must be more than 30% of the total aggregates mass.
