Abstract: Use of self-curing concrete is done according to different needs and goals; it helps if water is not available near places of construction area or with expensive spending of money can provide water for curing; Self-curing concrete help for speed in construction work and having an economical project. As it is very important topic, many researchers have trying to develop it with different methods and techniques and after many studies and investigations It has been found that they used different material for having good results, some important materials which had acceptable results is super absorbent polymer, light weight aggregate, wood powder, polyethylene or 600 and other shrinkage reducing admixtures. 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 structures in difficult terrains and in areas 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 (PEG 400) in concrete which helps in self curing and helps in better hydration and hence strength. In the present study, the affect of admixture (PEG 400) on compressive strength, split tensile strength and modulus of rupture by varying the percentage of PEG by weight of cement from 0% to 2% were studied for M20.M30 and M40 mixes. It was found that PEG 400 could help in self curing by giving strength on par with conventional curing. It was also found that 1% of PEG 400 by weight of cement was optimum for M30 without compromising workability.
Keywords: self curing concrete, poly ethylene glycol, internal curing, light weight porous aggregate
