Abstract: As per Indian standard codes the concrete should be accepted or rejected on the basis of 28 days normal cured strength. Normal curing of concrete for 28 days is quite complicated, time consuming for results. There are no adequate results to quantity durability. So to avoid this time consumptions and delay of results, the accelerated curing strength can be extremely helpful. As per IS -9013 there were only prediction for 28 days strength of normal concrete from accelerated curing strength. This paper deals with some of the attempts made of fly ash concrete to get the strength from the accelerated curing test. Now a day’s fly ash concrete is frequently used in the construction and there is no principle for the evaluation of fly ash concrete from accelerated concrete tests. Fly ash is a waste or by product generated from the electrical thermal plants. In this experimental work the fly ash concrete mix proportions are replaced by 70%, 60%, 50%, 40% and 30%. This paper deals with the correlation strength between 28 days normal concrete curing strength and accelerated curing tests of fly ash concrete.
