The interfacial transition zone, generally the weakest link of the chain, is considered as the strength-limiting phase in concrete. In freshly compacted concrete, water films from around the large aggregate particles. Fly Ash use as a bonding layer between two layers of concrete about 5mm thick for the grade of M30, and M35. A comparison test was carried out in between control mix and fly ash in powder form and in paste forms with two different profiles such as horizontal and rectangular in cubes of 15x15x15cm. For each grade and for each profile 9 numbers of cubes were casted. Compressive strength tests were carried out after the curing of 7, 14 and 28 days. In present research work, fly ash used as bonding agent as it’s useful in reduction of interfacial transition zone in the concrete.
