Abstract:
Today every construction firm is focused on sustainable construction, minimizing the construction cost and increasing efficiency.  Concrete cost on any project is around 30% of the total project cost. The use of portland cement in concrete results in the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2. It becomes very necessary that environmental friendly materials be used in such a way that the cost of the Portland cement material is minimized in order to make the project more economical. One goal of this research is to use supplementary cementitious materials in the concrete to make it environmental friendly.  In this paper, three mix designs were evaluated. In the first mix design portland cement was used. The second mix design was prepared by replacing 20% portland cement with Class F fly ash. The third mix design was carried out by replacing 50% portland cement with blast furnace slag. Another goal of this research is to determine the compressive strength of different design mixes at different conditions. In this research the testing is performed on three different mix designs in the concrete testing laboratory. The combination is made in such a way that the cubes are to be tested at the designated times and curing conditions. Hence, we determined which combination of mix designs is best for the concrete to use in the future to achieve sustainability and desired strength.
