Abstract: In these days the Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC) plants were giving a back bone support for construction and concrete industries. As the infrastructure increases, concrete demand also increasing proportionately due to huge benefits of concrete, consequently, number of ready mixed concrete plants were also increase proportionately to supply the concrete according to the demand. Those who are fed up with the site mixing and environmental problem associated with them, they are opting for RMC. The growth of RMC is increasing from metropolitan cities to villages. One of the key factors for the growth of RMC is retention of slump till reach the construction site by using super plasticizer. In the present study, the growth of RMC industry from 1990’s in India was presented. An experimental study was done on Slump retention capacity of concrete with fly ash, GGBS and lime Stone powder with 0.4% of admixture dosage.
Keywords: Growth of RMC, Slump retention capacity, Super plasticizer, Ready mix concrete.
