Abstract: Today concert is widely used construction materials due to its good compressive strength and durability. Any laxity in curing will badly affect the strength and durability of concrete. Self curing concrete is one of the special concretes in mitigating insufficient curing due to human negligence paucity of water in arid areas, inaccessibility of structure in difficult terrains and in area where the presence of fluorides in water will badly affect the characteristics of concrete. the present study involves the use of shrinkage reducing admixture polyethylene glycol (PEG400) in concrete which helps in self curing and help for better hydration and hence strength. In this study the percentage of PEG 400 by weight of cement from 0% to 1.5% as the dosage of internal curing compound was mixed. The test result where studied both M20 and M25 mixes. It is found through this experiment study that PEG400 help in self curing by giving strength on par with that of the conventional curing method and also improved workability.
Keywords: self curing concrete Polyethylene glycol PEG400, Workability
