Abstract: This report work deals with the increased use of silica fume as a supplementary cementations material numerous efforts are made to optimise the extent of replacement in the previous modules extensive work were done to find the optimised extent of replacement of cement with silica fume as 13%. Test of this optimum replacement were also done on beams and short columns to confirm the result. Production of silica fume concrete is done on case-to-case basis depending upon the specific requirement with regard to any parameter of importance or consideration. An attempt in made to define a comprehensive method of proportioning silica fume concrete. The method is also tested for only one parameter that is compressive strength.
Keywords: Concrete Method Production Material.
