Abstract

Rapid growth of infrastructure has led to the use of concrete almost everywhere, and one of the main products required in manufacturing concrete is cement, with the increase in the amount of cement used, with the increase in the amount of cement used, heat of hydration increases which will lead to the formation of cracks in concrete accompanied by shrinkage effect. In order to control this, palm oil fuel ash, an agro waste which contains some amount of silica act as a pozzolanic material is being used as cement replacement and its strength is compared with conventional concrete of grade M25. Palm oil fuel ash which is obtained by burning palm fruit and dry leaves of palm oil tree in palm oil mills is also used to control heat of hydration effect on concrete, after pulverizing and making it into a fine powder. In this study cement is being replaced with pal oil fuel ash by 0%, 2%, 6%, 8%, 10%, 12%, 14% and the strength tests like compressive strength test, tensile strength test, flexural strength test and Sorptivity are performed and are compound with the results of conventional concrete of grade M25 for 14 and 28, 56, 90 days. Satisfactory results have been found at a percentage of 12%. Increase in strength is found at this percentage.
