Abstract: In the present generation the construction activity is rapidly increasing as a result the usage of cement is growing more and leads to environmental hazards. This study deals with the mechanical properties of partial replacement of cement by GGBS and Fly-Ash in M40 grade concrete. Cement were replaced as partially in the form of 5%,10%,15% and 20%. As per IS 456:2000 [1] the tests were conducted on 3,7 and 28th days after curing condition. This study proves that the possible replacement to cement by GGBS is 10% and fly ash 15% used in the concrete, which helps in minimizing the consumption of cement and environmental problems also.
Keywords: Cement; fly-ash; Ground Granulated Blast Furnace slag (GGBS); Compressive strength.
