Abstract: Low water-cement proportion solid mixes have been progressively advanced for use in Civil Engineering foundation because of potential changes in quality and sturdiness. Notwithstanding their expanded quality and diminished porous nature, the structures are defenseless to early-age splitting. Techniques have been created to lessen the breaking in structures. One such strategy is interior curing. The utilization of internal curing operators can give an adequate volume of water by methods for light weight aggregates (LWA). Notwithstanding the volume of water gave by the LWA, the dispersion of the LWA assumes a fundamental part in the viability of interior curing. Recently, high-performance concrete (HPC) has been increasingly used in practice, with the development of concrete technology and the introduction of super plasticizer and silica fume. High performance concrete is a concrete, which has far super quality and sturdiness attributes when contrasted with regular cement. The present examination researches the quality related properties of HPC specimens like flexural quality utilizing silica fume, super plasticizer in the inward curing technique. The mix proportion of 1:1.76:2.52:0.36 is utilized to cast pillars (100mm X 150mm X 1700mm). The HPC specimens are thrown with supplanting of concrete with 12% of silica smoke and expansion of 6%,12%,20% LWA vermiculite. From the pressure test result, ideal rate substitution of LWA is discovered and utilized for throwing bar. The aftereffects of flexural tests directed on shaft specimens demonstrates that 6% substitution of vermiculite gives the higher quality in both water and inward curing conditions
