Concrete is the most widely utilized building material in civil engineering projects of all kinds. Concrete is more attractive than other construction materials due to its strength properties. Cement, which accounts for about 5% of worldwide CO2 emissions, is a key component of concrete. To make concrete more environmentally friendly, appropriate replacements will be added to the cement. The present study deals with fly ash and alccofine as supplementary cementitious materials for the M40 grade of concrete. The cement is replaced with 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% of fly ash by weight of cement and fly ash is optimized. The optimized cement concrete is further replaced with 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% alccofine by weight of fly ash optimized cement to form a ternary concrete. The strength properties are studied to establish a ternary concrete for M40 grade.
