Abstract – Cement concrete is the most widely used material for various constructions. Properly designed and prepared concrete results in good strength and durability properties. Even such well designed and prepared cement concrete mixes under controlled conditions also have certain limitations because of which the above properties of concrete are found to be inadequate for special situations and for certain special structures. Hence verity of admixtures such as fly ash, Silica fume, rise husk ash and stone dust etc., are used along with cement in certain percentages to enhance the properties of the regular cement concrete. Hence an attempt has been made in the present investigation on replacement of cement with recent new pozzolinic material of pozzolinic up to certain percentages. To attain the setout objectives of the present investigations, the grade of concrete M 20 mix case have been taken as reference concrete. Hardened concrete is tested for strength properties such as Cube Compressive strength, Split Tensile Strength, Modulus of Rupture and Youngs Modulus of Elasticity. The variations of above strengths with variation in different % of Metakaolin have been studied.
