Abstract: since few years great advances in concrete technology have been increasing, now a days the development and the use of new chemical additives which added to concrete in very small quantities can dramatically improve mechanical properties of concrete in its fresh and hardened states. This paper presents an experimental investigation on the mechanical properties of concrete produced by incorporating Super Absorbent Polymers in varied percentage. Test result indicates that the mechanical properties of concrete can be improved through the optimum use of Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP).
