Abstract – In this study influence of partial replacements of Ordinary Portland cement by and Rice Husk Ash (RHA) were investigated and the effects on mechanical and durability properties were determined. Namely two types of pozzolans were 2 opted for this study which is Rice Husk Ash. The procedure of test and results of mechanical and durability properties were reviewed from engineering properties of blended concrete with Colombian rice husk ash .The results inferred showed enhanced performance up to 60MPa at 28 days with acceptable workability.

Key Words – Rice husk ash, high strength concrete, pozzolanic activity
