Abstract: In this present research agricultural byproducts obtained at the industry of palm oil is used a coarse aggregate in the concrete. The palm oil shells (OPS) are the waste from the palm oil industry. For this study 30% (0,10,20 and 30) of coarse aggregate are replaced with OPS. for this study M30 grade concrete is designed by adding 0.2% electro-chemical resistances (ECR) glass fiber to the volume of the concrete and to be reduced the greenhouse gases from the cement industry replacing the cement with ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) up to 30% (0,10,20 and 30)) are used. For this concrete strength (compressive strength, split tensile strength, and modulus of rupture), and durability of Sulphate attack, Acid attack and Chloride attack are done. All the results are compared with normal concrete.
Keywords: Acid Attack, Chloride Attack, Electro-chemical Resistances (ECR) Glass Fiber, Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS), Palm Oil Shells (OPS), Sulphate Attack.
