Recent Advancement in Proportioning of No-fine Concrete – Review


The paper highlight characteristics of no fine concrete (NFC) by evaluating and interpreting the research work undertaken by research scholars around world in past. It explains the approach for better performances. It helps to understand and identify the difference between knowledge and actual performance on ground which stops it from wide and acceptable application throughout the globe. A comprehensive investigation of proportioning of no fine Concrete has been discussed. Identification of relationship between mechanical properties with its design and pore structure of NFC will help us in studying ways of its better utilization. The specific reference has been made for India to understand level of research & development in laboratories and status of different applications at different levels.
