Abstract: The motive of the current study is to understand the effects of the addition of cementitious materials like Alccofine-1203, fly ash and foundry sand on the concrete. Cement is replaced by Alccofine-1203 in amount of 0, 5, 10, 15% and the fine aggregate is replaced by foundry sand in amount of 0, 5, 10, and 15% for preparing mix design of M30 grade. The overall performance of concrete mix is characterized by the test Flexural Strength (FS), Compressive Strength (CS), split tensile strength (STS), at the curing period of 7, 14 and 28 days. The entire test Results of concrete carrying Alccofine-1203 and foundry sand has greater compressive strength, enhanced durability and reduced dispersion property. It is observed that the maximum compressive, tensile and flexural strength scan be achieved by addition of 10% of Alccofine-1203 and 10% foundry sand in the mixture of concrete with fixed water cement ratio 0.45. The project results suggested that reasonable high performance concrete can be obtained by replacing fine aggregate with 0% to 10% of foundry sand along with partial replacement of cement with 10% of the A.F-1203.
