Abstract

The usage of cementitious materials is getting more and more intense with the advanced development in infrastructure area. In order to reduce usage of cement in concrete, Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS) can be used as the replacement material [1]. GGBS is obtained by quenching molten iron slag from a blast furnace in water or steam to produce a glassy, a granular product that is then dried and ground into a fine powder. The effects of various percentages of GGBS (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 & 40) were investigated. The fresh and hardened properties of GGBS concrete is then compared with Normal Concrete (M35). GGBS Concrete with 5% Replacement results in higher strength.
