High-quality cement is constantly superior cement, yet elite cement isn't generally high-quality cement. Strong cement Specified high quality cement can't guarantee the acknowledgment of tough cement. It is extremely hard to get an item that meets every one of the traits in the meantime. Thus, unique pozzolanic materials, for example, ground impact heater slag (GGBS), silica rage, rice husk cinder, fly powder, and profoundly receptive Metakaolin, are some volcanic fiery debris materials that can be utilized as solid contrasting options to concrete for elite the fundamental organization of cement. Thusly, we have the above materials were XRD test to comprehend the distinctive segments of the progressions. What's more, it is additionally imperative to keep the bond proportion in the base, since we should utilize a water lessening specialist, the plasticizer, which assumes a critical part in the generation of elite cement. So we have tried distinctive materials in this task, for example, rice husk fiery remains, ground impact heater slag and silicon powder to get the required request. In this paper the work is done on M30 Grade concrete. We utilize diverse rates of engineered strands (i.e., Recron filaments), i.e. 0.0%, 0.1%, 0.2%, 0.3% of the aggregate weight of cement, and cast. At long last, we utilize distinctive rates of silicon powder rather than bond to keep the fiber content steady and pour the solid. In our investigation, we utilized two sorts of bond, Portland slag concrete and standard Portland concrete. We arranged mortar, 3D square, chamber, crystal, lastly pressure test, split test, Flexural Strength tests were performed.
