Abstract: Concrete is a general composite material used in construction industry over many decades. Due to rapid Growth of infrastructure, the demand of concrete is raising day by day. This composite material mainly made up of cementitious material such as cement and natural sand. This cement production results in release of large amount of CO2 which directly effects environment pollution and Global warming and also, the usage of natural sand leads to environmental degradation. So, better way to reduction in CO2 emission by minimizing cement content with some other puzolonic materials such as Metaakolin,Fly ash, Ground granulated blast furnace slag(GGBS) and This present Experiment is for to observe the cube and cylinder specimens strength of M40 grade of concrete at 7 days and 28 days with partial replacement of cement with ground granulated blast furnace slag ,Metakaolin and flyash @ 15%,30%,45% of binding material and natural sand with manufactured sand (M-sand).
Keywords: Concrete, Fly Ash, GGBS, Metakaolin, M-Sand, Compressive Strength, split tensile strength
Scope of the Article: Mechanical Design
