This paper is attempting to investigate the use of fly ash in the cement concrete industry. In developed countries, the use of mineral mixtures such as fly ash and silica fume and asphalt ash has already been adopted to make concrete. This includes large-scale commercial applications for addition or replacement of cement. In India, too many replacements have already been prepared and adopted with the introduction of mixed concrete, and the process has been accelerated in recent years to affect construction economics. A study was conducted to investigate the effect of fly ash on concrete. In this paper, mechanical properties with different levels were found. The level of cement replenishment by fly ash was suggested to be 0, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 percent for analysis in this project work. The compression strength of cubes of 3, 7, and 28 days as a quality criterion was determined according to general code practice. Results are displayed in related tables and graphs. The performance of the mixture designed using fly ash content is sufficient and the results are recommended as recommendations for various cement concrete industries.
