STRENGTH CHARACTERISTICS OF LATERIZED CONCRETE USING LIME
Volcanic ash (VA) is formed during volcanic eruptions, and is considered as natural pozzolan as per ASTM C618-93, a standard specification for ‘Fly Ash and Raw or Calcinated Natural Pozzolan for Use as a Mineral Admixture in Portland Cement Concrete’.
Roman concrete vs Portland cement Romans made concrete by mixing volcanic ash with lime and seawater to make a mortar, and then incorporating into that mortar chunks of volcanic rock, the “aggregate” in the concrete.
Roman concrete, also called opus caementicium, was a material used in construction during the late Roman Republic until the fading of the Roman EmpireRoman concrete was based on a hydraulic-setting cement.
