Concrete is the most commonly used material for construction purpose in the world. The expensive cost of concrete constituents such as cement, fine aggregate and coarse aggregate has made the need to search for alternative construction materials. Palm Kernel Shell Ash is an agricultural waste product which is burnt to form ash. This work examines the possibility of using Palm Kernel Shell Ash as partial replacement of cement. In this study PKSA was partially replaced as 0%, 6%, 12% and 18% in place of cement in concrete for M30 mix and compared with conventional concrete. The results show that high strength is attained at 6% replacement of PKSA with cement. Further the durability test shows that PKSA concrete is better resistance to acid, alkaline and water absorption.
