The paper presents a comparative study on two types of fly ash concretes. Fly ash replacement by various percentages of 20%, 30% and 40% was made. The conventional M25 grade of concrete was made using OPC 53 grade. The optimize mix ratio and mechanical and durability properties of fly ash-based concrete are evaluated and compared with test results.


Concrete has been the basic building material ever since the field of construction came into existence. With the technological advancement, the definition of concrete has undergone a few modifications, but the prime goal has remained the same. The reason behind the modification and evolution is the birth of additive materials like fly ash, silica fume, rice husk, etc., which once being a residue has now found an important place in the manufacturing of high performance concrete.
