Abstract: By handling the cement, bagasse ash, silica fume and metakaolin as partial replacement of cement of cement a quaternary mix concrete could be achieved. Various percentages of replaced materials were considered for analysis. These three different materials consist of high amount of alumina ion and silica percentage. Use of these materials enhances the microstructure of concrete and helps to attain less permeable concrete. Physical and chemical properties of materials analyzed, and partially replaced with cement in different proportions such as HSC [5B, 10B, 15B, 20B] and HSC [5S, 10S, 15S, 20S] and HSC [5M, 10M]. The cubes of [100mm x 100mm x 100 mm] size were cast and tested. After confirming the characteristic compressive strength from cubes, optimum values (HSC 10B, HSC 15S and HSC 5M) has been taken. These values have been mixed up into three propositions (QBSM1, QBSM2 and QBSM3). Compressive strength results show that optimum percentage was found to be QBSM2 (10% SCBA+ 10% SF + 5% MK).
