Abstract: The current research work represents the various test results from an experimental program for the influence of mineral admixture, stone dust, steel slags and rapid hardening (accelerator) type of chemical admixtures along with the inclusion of steel fibers for various mixture proportions on the mechanical properties of concrete. The different strength properties considered the cubical size for compressive strength, prism for flexural rigidity and monitored the ultrasonic pulse velocity test including water absorption (sorptivity) test for different curing days was evaluated. The outcome results for concrete shows that when the percentage of steel slag is increased then there will be a good workability in fresh concrete than normal aggregates. In overall 100% of stone dust, if the portion of steel slag is more than 40% with replacement of coarse aggregate and binding material as slag will lead to minimum workability, there is no change in the proceding workability area in the further addition of super plasticizer. Also, the study indicates that the crimped steel fiber matrix interaction gives considerable results to enhance the bending stress in flexural rigidity caused by the introducing of steel fibers.
