Providing the Sustainability with the Pozzuolana Concrete Used in Foundation
Research Asisstant Dr. Zuhal Şimşek

To provide concrete industry and sustainability development, the amount of cement which releases harmfull gases and wastes while being produced should be reduced. Because using less cement than the amount which is gained as a result of mixture calculation cannot provide necessary performance in the point of resistance, it should be predicated that using the materials which are appraised by changing places with the concrete which has connective quality to provide sustainability. In this study it is aimed to increase the strength by providing impermeability of underground building elements and to provide resistance by the puzzlans which are added in the mixture of concrete by changing places for sustainable environment. To prove impermeability for sustainable environment, a certain percentage of pozzuolanas added to the concrete mix by switching through cement. Permeability of pressure water, capillarity and compressive strength evaluation tests were carried out.on concrete specimens with pozzuolana additive.
