The main intention of this experimental study is to study the durability of high strength concrete and to observe the behaviour of the high strength concrete in severe exposure conditions. For this study the high strength concrete of M75 grade concrete has been prepared. In this present work, an attempt is made to achieve compressive strength of 75 N/mm2 by using locally available materials. These attempts are made with various supplementary cementitious materials which make the partial replacement to ordinary Portland cement such as fly ash, silica fume, ground granulated blast furnace slag, quartz powder, metakaoline, to achieve the targeted strength. It also reduces the effect of cement industry on greenhouse gases. The test result shows that the concrete containing about 15% of silica fume and 15% metakaolin shows better results. From the various attempts the compressive strength of 60 N/mm2 was achieved.
