This project investigated the thermal properties and strength of cement with the addition of rice husk ash (RHA) and cenospheres in five mix designs tested against ordinary portland cement (OPC). Although research exists on how various percentages of RHA and cenospheres affect cement’s strength and durability, there is little information on the thermal impact of these additives. Understanding the thermal properties of the modified materials gives potential for a more resistant product that can be supplemented for ordinary portland cement.
