Paper Title:Ultra-high Strength Concrete with Reduced Carbon Footprints


In today’s scenario, the availability of land is much less than its requirement, so there is need of constructing massive structures but demands high cement usage. This paper aims to achieve ultra-high strength of concrete by replacing cement with waste materials like alccofine and iron dust. This will reduce usage of cement, which can save energy and reduce pollution. The ultra-high strength is achieved by partial replacement of cement with micro-silica and alccofine. Further, if cement is partially replaced by micro silica and sand is replaced by iron dust, ultra-high strength is achieved, but not appreciable.
