Abstract: The experimental work is to study the influence of FLY ASH and ALCCOFINE 1203 in achieving High Strength Concrete (HSC). This study analyses the performance of various combinations of concrete in which cement is partially replaced with 30% fly ash with different proportions of alccofine of grade 1203, micro fine silica includes 0%, 4%, 8%, 12% respectively. Super plasticizer Conplast SP430 of 1.5% for every specimen is added in order to improve the workability of the mix. Specimens are casted for M 60 grade as per mix design using manufactured sand (M sand) as fine aggregate. Durability tests conducted includes rapid chloride penetration test, water absorption test, carbonation test and water permeability test. Scanning electron microscopic analysis was carried out to determine the development of micro structural configuration of the concrete.
Keywords: High Strength Concrete, Rapid Chloride Penetration Test, Water Absorption Test, Carbonation Test, Water Permeability Test, and Scanning Electron Microscopy.
