Abstract: This study investigates about the behaviour of high performance concrete produced with multi component composite cements. Here, the cement is partially replaced with certain mineral admixtures. The mineral admixture used in the study are fly ash, rice husk ash, silica fume and ground granulated blast furnace slag in various percentages up to 50%. The mix proportion for fly ash and rice husk ash are kept constant thought the study as 25% and 7.5% respectively. The Mechanical properties such as (Compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength and modulus of elasticity), Durability tests (Acid test, Sorptivity), permeability test and Non Destructive test are performed on M40 grade concrete cube material property, cylinder and prism. The outcomes were analyzed with the controlled mix. The results shown that the M3 mix ( 50% cement, 25% fly ash, 7.5% RHA,7.5 % silica fume and 10 % GGBS) obtained optimum strength, durability and other properties when analyzed with the other mixes.
Keywords: Acid test, Compressive strength, Flexural strength FA, RHA, GGBS, Modulus of elasticity, Nondestructive tests, Silica fume, Sorptivity, Spilt tensile strength and permeability.
