Abstract: Reactive Powder Concrete is a Concrete which does not have fine &coarse aggregate in it. It is due to the high cost in coarse aggregate and at the same time scarcity of the fine aggregate. RPC is also consists of fully a partially replacement of cement .so we are using partially replacement of cement. Where it is a special concrete and the microstructure is optimized by precise degree of all particles in the mix yield to maximum density. It consists of metakaolin, quartz-sand and cement. Here we are replacing coarse and fine aggregate by quartz-sand, and cement is partially replaced by metakaolin. And the percentage of meta kaolin is identified by trial and error method. In this we get the compressive, flexural & split tensile strength of RPC for 28 days.
