Abstract: This research study has experimentally performed on the compressive strength, split tensile flexural strength and durability test method also emphasized in various mixes of high-performance concrete. The maximum compressive strength of concrete was noted for different curing days, while the addition of fly ash 20% with 15% of slag along with1% of sisal fiber reinforced concrete than compared to Plain Portland cement content up to 100%. Further, increasing the cementitious binder content there is a drastic fall in strength gain was observed than that of other mixes. On the contrary, the best mix was identified that’s 10% fly ash along with 15% of slag produced the highest compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength for different days of cured the concrete specimens. Also, the durability test performed as prescribed in ATMC 1202, based on the lab test results, it is concluded that the electrical charge passed over all the concrete specimen at 28 and 56 days presents the lesser values 1000 (coulombs) this is the evidently proved that the high resistance towards the corrosions and drastically reduced the chloride ions permeability except for plain cement concrete.
