Abstract

This study is focusing on the effect of MIRHA in increasing the strength of floating foamed mortar. Foamed concrete that has density lower than 1000kg/m3 would be floating in the water but its compressive strength would be too low to be used in construction. So, the objective of this research was to determine the optimum MIRHA percentage to be used to increase the compressive strength of floating foamed mortar until it exceeded the minimum requirement of compressive strength which is 3.45 Mpa. For each percentage ofMIRHA (0%, 5% and 20 %), 9 cube specimens with dimension of lOOxlOOxlOO mm are made for split tensile test which will be tested for 28th days. The cube specimens are fairly distributed for tests at 3'd days, 7th days and 28th days. For the mix of MIRHA and other pozzolan material like silica fume and GOBS, 18 cubes of 55x55x55 mm are made for compressive strength test wihich will be tested for 28th days. The specimens were subjected to wet curing for hydration process. The experimental results show that mix containing MIRRA presented higher compressive strength and with the exception of second mix that contains 5% of MIRHA, all other six has surpassed the minimum requirement compressive strength. The sixth mix that contains 10% of MIRHA and 20% of slag has achieved highest compressive strength which is 5.6 Mpa that exceeded required strength by 62%
