Abstract: This paper explores the Density and Workability of cement by supplanting cement with strengthening cementious materials like water hyacinth Ash. The impacts of Cement substance and water/cement quantitative connection on doable contemporary Concrete properties with Slump dynamical between ninety to a hundred millimeter, and decides the relations among contemporary solid properties, for example, Slump, and compacting factor. Functionality of cement can be made by halfway supplanting of Cement with water hyacinth in concrete. The substitution dimensions of water hyacinth Ash were 0%, 5%,10%, 15%, and 20%. The primary thought in mechanical properties of cement is Density. Denser cement gives less voids and porosity. The fundamental target was to watch the adjustment in Density of cement and loss of Workability by supplanting water hyacinth fiery debris in cement. From the perception, the Density and Workability somewhat differs than ordinary concrete. The results are very promising with these beneficial materials in the Concrete.
Keywords: Slump, Compaction Factor, Water Hyacinth ash Powder, Density.
