Concrete plays a vital role during the construction. Nowadays, while designing a structure, more important is being given to strength and durability of the concrete. Each structure may need some special properties that have to be satisfied by them for good performance. We know that concrete is good in compression and weak in tension. For increasing in compressive strength, we added that chemical admixtures into the concrete. This concrete has higher strength as compared to that ordinary concrete. The strength and durability of this concrete is depends on it mix proportions. Reactive powder concrete (RPC) is a developing composite material that will allow the concrete industry to optimize material use, generate economic benefits, and build structures that are strong, durable, and sensitive to environment. A comparison of the physical, mechanical, and durability properties of RPC and high performance concrete, (HPC) shows that RPC possess better strength (both compressive and flexural) Compared to HPC. This paper reviews the available literature on RPC, and presents the results of laboratory investigation such as fresh concrete properties, compressive strength, flexural strength, comparing RPC with HPC. Specific benefits and potential applications of RPC have also been described.
