Abstract:

Concrete is most widely used material in construction industry among the world. The use of cement and its production creates more environmental issues and much costlier. To get better results out of this, different types of Admixtures are added to concrete to achieve or modify its properties. This consequent modification adopts durability, workability or strength of given concrete. The main use of Admixture (Silica Fume) as replacement of cement in present days is to acquire concrete strength. In this paper, an experimental study on the nature of mineral admixture (silica fume) which influences the properties of fresh or hardened concrete is studied. This attempt was made to examine strength parameters of concrete made with partial substitution of cement by Silica fume (0%, 5%, 10%, 15% and 20%) for 3,7,28 and 56 days for both M20 and M30 grade concrete and to compare both the test results. It is casted for 150mm*150mm*150mm cubes for Compression strength and Cylinder of size 150mm diameter and 300mm height for tensile strength and 500mm*100mm*100mm beam mould for flexural strength.
