Abstract: The use of waste materials with pozzolanic properties in concrete production is a becoming a worldwide practice. The assessment of the pozzolanic activity of cement replacement materials is becoming increasingly important because of the need for more sustainable cementing products. In this paper, bamboo leaf ash is used as partial replacement for cement in ranges of 5%, 10%, 15%. Strength and durability tests were carried out to assess the feasibility of using bamboo leaf ash as partial replacement of cement in concrete.
Keywords: Bamboo Leaf Ash, Concrete, Compressive Strength, Durability tests.
