Abstract: Traditional testing methods such as absorption test and permeability test are normally not providing accurate results of nature of concrete and there is a need for another type of test to predict the durability of concrete. In this work, industrial by-product like dolomite, marble dust and fly ash are utilized as fraction of cement replacing with 2%, 4%, 6%, 8%, and 10% dolomite, 10% fly ash and 10% marble dust by the weight of cement. The study is conducted on mix designed concrete of M30 grade and compared with conventional concrete. The specimens are casted and tested to examine various properties of concrete like compressive strength, split tensile strength, durability and sorptivity. Durability test is done by hydrochloric acid (HCl) and sulphuric acid (H2SO4) on dolomite powder, promising results were obtained in the sorptivity test which shows the dense nature of concrete by the usage of dolomite powder.
