Abstract: Concrete has been the most preferred construction material. It is being increasingly used day by day all over the world due to its versatility, mould ability and high compressive strength. But the large-scale production of cement is causing environmental problems on one hand and the unrestricted depletion of natural resources on the other. So the issue of sustainable development in concrete construction is addressed in this paper through development of concrete mixes by replacing certain percentage of cement with fly ash. Trials on concrete mixes with replacement of 40%, 50%, 60% and 70% of cement with fly ash are carried out and the results depict that at the replacement level of 40% cement by fly ash, the required strength is achieved. It is also observed that the rate of early strength gain is retarded as the percentage replacement of cement increases. But in case of Geopolymer concrete (100% replacement of cement by fly ash) under a curing temperature around 600C and above, the strength gain rate is very high in initial stages. It is observed that design strength is achieved within 28 hours of oven curing. 2011 CAFET-INNOVA TECHNICAL SOCIETY. All rights reserved.
