Abstract – Concrete is one of the most widely used construction material in the world. It can be cast in diverse shapes. Concrete is a composite material formed by the combination of cement, sand, coarse aggregate and water in a particular proportion in such a way that the concrete produced meets the needs as regards its workability, strength, durability and economy. It is found to be versatile and hence gained importance in building materials. The concrete has high compressive strength, stiffness low thermal conductivity and low combustibility, but it has very low resistance tensile strength, limited ductility and little resistance to cracking. In the context of increased awareness regarding the ill effects of global warming, eco-friendly technologies are to be developed for the effective management of resources. The cost effectiveness in construction will be achieved only if we thinking from every corner of construction materials. In this Thesis, an attempt have made to overcome this problem by the limited use of Bentonite powder in place of Cement.
