Experimental study on the effect of organosilane compounds on the workability, strength and on water absorption characteristics of concrete has been carried out. Various concrete grades like M15, M20, M25 and M30 are prepared with variation in organosilane concentration as 0%, 0.25%, 0.50% and 1.00%. Fresh concrete is tested for workability. Compressive and tensile strength are calculated after 28 days of curing. Water absorption is calculated by placing specimens in oven for two days and then completely immersing the specimen in water for two days and calculating increase in weight of specimen.
