Abstract

This paper presents the split tensile strength of cement mortar incorporating micro-silica (MS), nano-silica (NS) and micro-silica with optimized content of nano-silica (MS+NS) as a partial replacement of cement. The split tensile strength of the mortar specimens were determined at 3, 7, and 28 days. The results were correlated by ANNOVA analysis and the results were correlated with the values of R2 obtained by analysis. The results reveal the enhanced strength and improved value of correlation coefficient R2 of mortar specimens with proper combination of micro and nano silica resulting in better performance as compared to conventional specimens.
