Abstract
Concrete is a basic material for the construction industry. Due to infrastructure development in the developing countries, consumption of concrete is very high. The consumption of cement is also very high to meet the requirements. So there is a need to look after the supplementary / alternative materials for the cement, fine aggregate and coarse aggregate. By using the Metakaolin its reduce the cost of cement being one of the most expensive component of concrete production and to also improve sustainability in the construction industry. In these trial examination work concrete cubes, cylinders and beams of M-60 grade were casted and tested to inspect different properties of concrete like workability, compressive strength, flexural strength and split tensile strength test. Metakaolin was replaced with cement at 0, 5, 10,15 and 20 % by weight of concrete in cement and testing after 7, 21 and 28 days curing.
