Abstract:

In this modernized world the increase in the demand of construction and need of providing sustainable growth for the development materials has prompted designers and the developers to opt for new ‘alternative substitutes’ feasible for construction. Considering this objective use of agricultural by-products is very constructive. These agricultural by-products namely silica fume (rice husk ash) and silpozz can be substituted instead of cement due to their pozzolanic behavior. In the present study, silica fume and silpozz were used as an admixture to cement in concrete and its properties were studied. The experimental study based upon the nature of silica fume and silpozz and its influence on the properties of concrete on replacement with 0,10,20,30 and 40% by weight of cement.  An attempt was made to test the strength parameters of concrete made with partial replacement of the cement by silica fume and silpozz. Test results indicated that 20-30% replacement of silica fume and silpozz in concrete has improved the strength of concrete.
