Abstract: This paper deals with M25 Concrete mix in which replacing Natural Sand by the Manufacturing Sand of 35% and 65% at Cement by Metakaolin of 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 percentages is compared with concrete had cement with Metakaolin at different percentages without replacement of natural sand .Workability is determined for Concrete and Cylindrical specimens of 150mm*300mm of size are casted to test Concrete properties such as Split Tensile strength(STS) and Compressive Strength(CS) of Concrete. These specimens are placed under curing of 7days, 28days and 60days; after that time placed under testing and compared the results with Normal Concrete.
Keywords: Metakaolin, Manufacturing Sand, Workability, Split tensile strength and Compressive Strength
Scope of the Article: Manufacturing Processes
