Abstract: This paper emphasizes the effects of sugar and honey on the strength properties of concrete. The experimentation has been carried out for evaluating the strength properties of concrete using sugar and honey as admixtures into the concrete composition. Based on the literature, the main function for usage of sugar and honey is to extend the initial setting time of concrete. Usually, this type of admixture used in the special cases like large piers and long piles for Repair, Restrain and strengthening of building. Five different percentages of admixtures sugar and honey are chosen in the experimentation as 0%, 10%, 15%, 20%, and 25% by weight of cement the mixed grade of concrete was taken as M20 grade and the grade of cement was taken as 53. The blocks of size 15x15x15mm was been prepared and the compressing test is been carried out. Finally, it was concluded that the setting time where deled and the workability and compressive strength of concrete enhanced when admixture like sugar and honey added into the concrete composition. The result for the admixture blocks where compare to the normal blocks the conclusion was taken. Thus, by adding admixture in the concrete it is observed that the setting time of the concrete was been deled and the workability of the concrete was increased. Thus, such type of admixture honey and sugar can be used in retrofitting of the structure which is located in hot weather.

Keywords: Honey and Sugar Admixture, Retrofitting, Strengthening of members.
