Abstract: A conglomerate of Paste and aggregates or rocks is often derives the name Concrete. The slurry comprising of Portland cement and water acts as an effective binder along the surfaces between the fine and coarse aggregates. By the chemical response called as the Hydration, this mixture of paste and aggregates hardens and gain strength to form the mass well-known as Concrete. The permutations and combinations tried in the proportions of ingredients of the mixture, comprising of cement, hypo sludge and micro silica, reduces the cost considerably. In this paper the influence of Hypo Sludge and Micro Silica, which play a vital role as a partial and a potential substitute for cement, in the mixture under loading conditions has been studied. The strength of the mixtures in withstanding the constant crushing load up to 28days was studied. As an outcome of the model pertaining to IS standards M20 grade concrete used to design the concrete mix, the compressive strength scaled up to 11% on inclusion of hypo sludge and micro silica, but further increase in hypo sludge gradually reduces the compressive strength.
