Title: Potential Use Of Carbide Lime Waste As An Alternative Material To Conventional Hydrated Lime Of Cement-Lime Mortars
Author: Al Khaja, Waheeb A.
Abstract: The present study aimed at the possibility of using the carbide lime waste as an alternative material to the conventional lime used for cement-lime mortar. The waste is a by-product obtained in the generation of acetylene from calcium carbide. Physical and chemical properties of the wastes were studied. Two cement-lime-sand mix proportions containing carbide lime waste were compared with the same mix proportions containing conventional lime along with a control mix without lime. Specimens were tested for strength properties in axial compression, splitting tensile, flexural along with shrinkage testing. Results of these investigations have shown that the carbide lime waste can be readily used for masonry cement mortar work.
