Abstract

The purpose of this experiment is to reduce the cost of construction to certain extent without compromising with strength and durability. To improve the strength of concrete by partial replacement of cement with industrial waste materials such as fly ash, instead of using standard in proportion for cement mixture By preparing concrete mix with these modified materials (cement, coarse aggregate, sand and fly ash) cubes of standard sizes (15x15x15)cm are casted and tests are performed on workability, compressive strength of concrete. By this concrete strength is calculated and compared with nominal mix strength and found that partial replacement of cement with fly ash is suitable for the construction work
