Coal dependent power plants are the fundamental source of power production units in India. The primary by-product of this power plant is fly Ash. The fly Ash can be utilized as a cementitious material or mineral admixture replacing cement partially in concretes, for providing numerous benefits to concrete. The experiment is carried out to assess mortar behavior in fresh and hardened state and also the behavior of Masonry Block bonded with CM with fly ash and Pond ash as constituents The strength development of masonry cement mortar of grades CM1:4, CM1:6 and CM1:8 containing various proportions of fly ash replacing cement and pond ash replacing fine aggregates under normal curing as per IS 2250-1981.The study is extended to understand the behavior of masonry mortar in masonry block -masonry triplets and masonry quadruplets.
