Abstract

Concrete is the most important engineering material and the addition or replacement of some of the materials may change the properties of the concrete. In recent years a lot of research work has been carried out in order to obtain more durable and long term performance of concrete structures in the dynamic environment. In this experimental study, concrete mixes of different proportions with Fly ash, micro silica and recycled concrete aggregate are prepared and tested after different days of moisture curing and what is the effect of these materials on the strength of concrete is studied We are replacing the cement by Fly ash and Micro silica with 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% and the coarse aggregate with Recycled Concrete Aggregate with 0%, 5%, 10% and 15%. Here the grade of concrete is M 25. The experimental investigation is carried out and finally the strength of each mix is calculated and the results are produced.
