Abstract— This research describes the importance of the effect of silica fume on concrete properties and the advantages of its use in the Kurdistan region, Silica fume can either be ‘addition’ (added separately at the concrete mixer) or incorporated into a factory-produced composite Size: KB.

Silica Fume. Silica fume (sf) is the byproduct of the manufacture of silicon for the computer industry. It is a very finely divided material, many hundreds of times finer than cement. It reacts with lime and water in a similar way to Fly ash, also known as pulversided fuel ash (pfa), to produce a binder.

As per the Table-1 Silica fume has the maximum fineness of 28 m 2 g-1 whereas the fumed Silica has the fineness of m 2 g-1 which is 6 to 7 times finer than Silica fume. Finer the particle of pozzolano, higher will be the modulus of elasticity, which enhances the durability characteristics of the HPC.
