Author(s): Pawar Dhanasri B
Abstract: As in today’s Industrial waste is used to make cement and concrete in the constructional field. New by-products and waste material are produced in the industry. Damping or Disposal of these materials causes environmental as well as health problems There is a lot of potential in the concrete industry to recycle waste material. High performance concrete is technically and economically very helpful due to its used in massive volumes. This Study faces on the Strength performance of concrete with copper slag, silica fume and its blend. Cement & Sand replacement by various percentage with copper slag, silica fume and its blend are studied. Concrete tests are conducted on the concrete samples at the specific ages. The comparison made on the basis of compressive and tensile strength performance of copper slag and silica fume. Respective figures and discussion will be made to find out the optimum result and make it more sustainable product to be used for the construction.
