The purpose of this paper is to investigate the
durability of cement mortar in presence of Rice Husk Ash (RHA).
The strength and durability of mortar with different replacement
level (0%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% and 30%) of Ordinary Portland
Cement (OPC) by RHA is investigated here. RHA was
manufactured from an uncontrolled burning process. Test samples
were prepared with river sand of FM 2.73. Samples were kept in
controlled environment up to test time. The results show that
addition of RHA was shown better results for 20% replacement
level than OPC at 90 days. In durability test all samples passed for
20 cycles except 25% and 30% replacement level.
