Abstract:In today’s world concrete is probably the most extensively used construction material in the world. In this current paper, Metakaolin is used as admixture to produce high strength concrete. Metakaolin can be used as a concrete constituent, replacing part of the cement content, since it has pozzolanic properties. This paper presents experimental studies conducted on HPC mix of M-60 grade using mineral and chemical admixtures in various proportions. According to Indian Standard and Morth, the M-60 grade concrete mix has been designed. The replacement levels has been 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50% (by using weight) for Metakaolin. The end results obtained from compressive strength, tensile strength, durability and Non Destructive Test (NDT) are to be compared with the conventional specimens. In this paper low water ratio of 0.30 is used and hence, chemical admixture named DARACEM 813 is used for enhancing the workability of concrete. The compressive and tensile test on the hardened concrete is done for 7 days test and 28 days test. The durability of the concrete is tested using acids (Concentrated Sulphuric Acid (H2SO4) and Hydrochloric Acid (Hcl)) and alkaline (Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH)). Finally the NDT of Rebound Hammer and Ultrasound test has been conducted for the cubes. .
