  • Lime Mortar with PFA (Pulverised Fly Ash / Pulverised Fuel Ash) Ash Ahmed (Aug '20)

    Compressive and Flexural Strength of Non-Hydraulic Lime Mortar with PFA Pozzolan

    This paper investigates the properties of non-hydraulic (lime putty) lime mortar containing PFA (fly ash). Non-hydraulic lime mortars with PFA offer a more sustainable alternative to cement based mortars without compromising setting time or strength whilst offering improved flexibility and breathability.

  • Palm Oil Fuel Ash (POFA) Ash Ahmed (Nov '18)

    Palm Oil Fuel Ash as a Cement Replacement in Concrete

    This study investigates the effectiveness of agro waste ash by-product Palm Oil Fuel Ash (POFA) as a sustainable alternative to replace ordinary Portland cement (OPC).

  • Use of Coconut COIR in Fiber Reinforced Concrete, Soil and Lime Ash Ahmed (Dec '20)

    Coconut Fibre (COIR) as a Natural Alternative to Reinforcement Fibres in Concrete, Soil and Lime Mortars

    This paper examines the use of coconut COIR as a natural and sustainable alternative to reinforcement fibres in common use in the construction industry.
