Abstract: This article investigates the slump and compressive strength of artificial lightweight aggregate concrete with Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS) and Silica Fume with glass fibres. The increase in usage of cement in the construction industry is a concern for ecological deterioration, in this view; artificial aggregates was manufactured with major amount of fly ash and replacement of cement with various industrial by-products in concrete. An optimum level of GGBFS from 10 to 50% and Silica Fume from 2 to 6% with addition of glass fibres was assessed based on compressive strength values. The compressive strength was conducted for 7 and 28Days of water curing on M30 grade lightweight concrete with constant water to cement ratio as 0.45 and 0.2% of Master Gelenium super plasticizer. The conclusions achieved from the compressive strength of concrete containing GGBFS and Silica Fume was increased as the curing time increases. As a result lightweight aggregate concrete with a cement content of 226 kg/m3 develops 37.3 N/mm2 compressive strength.
