Abstract: The ordinary Portland cement (OPC) production increasing worldwide and it is necessary to reduced CO2 generation. It needs to increase the blended cement by addition of supplementary cementitious material such as industrial and agricultural byproduct. The effect of Fly Ash (FA) and Rice Husk Ash (RHA) as partial substitute of OPC on the properties of cement paste and packing density were describes in this research paper. The cement was replaced by 5% to 30% FA and RHA for double blended cement paste. And for triple blended cement paste replaced by 15% to 40% of FA and RHA combination were used. The particle packing density, void ratio, water film thickness and all general properties of cement test were conducted. The result shows that an increase in strength and particle packing density of triple blend cement paste with a lower void ratio. Hence, by using such industrial and agricultural byproducts in the triple blend were useful for reduces the consumption of OPC and making the sustainable concrete.
