Concrete is the most normally utilized development material. The expansion of mineral admixture in concrete has drastically expanded alongside the improvement of solid industry, because of the thought of cost sparing, vitality sparing, natural assurance and protection of assets. High performance Concrete (HPC) is the most recent advancement in concrete. It has become progressively well-known now a days and is being utilized in numerous esteemed activities. Mineral admixtures, for example, fly debris, rice husk debris, metakaolin, silica fume and so on are all the more generally utilized in the improvement of HPC blends. Expansion of such materials has demonstrated the enhancements in the quality and toughness properties of cement. The improved pore structure of HPC is predominantly accomplished by the utilization of concoction and mineral admixtures. In the present examination the impact of mineral admixtures on the toughness properties of HPC is researched. A control blend with no mineral admixtures having a compressive quality was planned of 70MPa and one blend is set up by supplanting concrete with 10% silica fume + 15% fly debris the functionality tests were completed on the crisp blend. Durability properties are controlled by directing water absorption test and carbonatetest.
