Abstract

Concrete plays a remarkable role as a construction material across the globe. New technologies have helped to develop new forms of construction and alternative materials within the concrete area. One of most recent and advanced way of improving mechanical properties of concrete is through mineralization of bacterial isolates. Bacterial organisms have the unique capacity to produce calcite through metabolic activity. This paper investigates the prospect of achieving the higher strength of the concrete by using the microbiologically induced unique growth or filler. Here an investigation was done by using the bacteria “Bacillus megaterium” utilized in concrete grade of M70. The purpose of this research is to check the strength and costing of varied concentrations 103 cells/ml, 105 cells/ml and 107 cells/ml of bacterial concrete with conventional high strength concrete of M70 grade and to determine the optimum concentration. Bacterial concretes shows compressive strength compared to traditional concrete. The concentration 105 cells/ml gives optimum result compared to other concentrations.
