Abstract: Concrete is a globally utilized material in the construction field. In the last few decades, Concrete consumption has become multifold and usage has enhanced in massive scale due to the rapid growth of infra sector. Generally, Concrete consists of cement, aggregate, and water; these ingredients become more expensive day by day and additionally hard to please and is increasing widely. During the process of making Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) produces a large amount of greenhouse gases and the environment being polluted. To minimize the cement utilization and environmental issues is essential to switch the cement by another alternate materials such as pozzolanas. The various number of pozzolanic materials comes from industrial wastes are Groundz Granulatedz Blastz furnacez Slagz (GGBS), xFlyqAsh (FA), zSilicaz Fume (SF), Metakaolin (MK) etc are utilized in concrete. Similarly, the availability of river sand is getting drained furthermore it turns out troublesome. In order to avoid this problem river sand is alter by zManufacturedkSand (M Sand). An attempt is made in the present investigation to study on properties of fiber reinforced concrete (qsteelu fibers @ 1% of binder) of M40 grade made with OPC, GGBS, MK and manufactured sand. In this study, OPC is replaced by GGBS and MK in different proportions. By casting requisite number of cubes, cylinders then zMechanical properties are determined such as fCompressivekstrength,sSplitdtensile strength tests and durability properties are determined by conducting Water absorption and Sorptivity tests. Test results are compared between controlled concrete and innovative concrete of M40 grade.It is observed that 30%(15%GGBS,15%MK) replacement is optimum for strength and durability criteria.
Keywords: Compressivekstrength, GGBS, MK, OPC, Splitdtensile Strength, Steel Fibers, Sorptivity, Water Absorption.
