Abstract
The majority of India's electricity is generated by thermal power plants. Coal is used as a fuel in these thermal power plants to generate electricity. As a byproduct of this procedure, a significant amount of flyash is produced. Flyash is used to partially replace cement in concrete to avoid the need for additional land for its decomposition. The main goal of this project is to look at how M35 grade cement behaves when mixed 1:1.99:2.32 and mixed with 0.45 water-cement ratio. In this case, flyash class-F replaced 35 percent of the cement, and the steel fiber on the hooked end was used with 1 percent, or 1.5 percent, of the cement's weight. Aspect ratio of steel fiber is 50. The pozzolonic action of flyash and the strong bond formation of steel fiber led to an increase in compressive strength, split-tensile strength, and flexural strength when steel fiber and flyash were added. The idea of green concrete was developed through the use of flyash in concrete. The flyash-based concrete is affordable and safe for the environment.
