Abstract: The usage of plain cement concrete in construction fields is a regular practice which has benefits on the other hand there are disadvantages also like emission of harmful gases and depletion of natural resources. As a part of remedial measures this project deals with the High volume Alkali Activated FlyAsh Concrete which reduces usage of OPC and increases quality of concrete. For obtaining better performance for FlyAsh, initially it has to be activated by any suitable base solution. The methodology involves partially replacing cement with 60% and 80% of FlyAsh with NaOH as alkali activator of 3M and 4M morality, adding with a variation of 3%, 5% and 7% with respect to weight of FlyAsh is considered. Results obtained after testing different mixes of High volume Alkali Activated FlyAsh Concrete under various tests and procedures of activation binding to IS codes show significant and desirable results when compared to controlled concrete but for final days of curing than initial ones.
