Concrete, being one of the most commonly used building materials in construction industries, has, cement as its principle component. Cement paste is responsible for bonding and strength gain in concrete. The production of cement releases an equal amount of CO2 to the atmosphere causing environmental pollution. This Study identifies the property enhancement of concrete due to the partial replacement of cement with pozzolanic materials such as fly ash and silica fume at 40% and 7% respectively. Tests were conducted to identify mechanical properties – compression, split tension, flexure; and Impact resistance. Steel fibres were also incorporated at 0.75%, 1.15% and 1.55% to the mix. Addition of steel fibre to blended concrete showed an increase of 33-77% on mechanical properties and 186% on impact resistance of concrete at 28 days. A Multiple linear regression model was formulated using SPSS, and consequently, equations were derived to predict the mechanical properties and impact resistance of concrete. The equations were found to be in a good agreement with the experimental results obtained by various other researches with significance level lesser than 0.05 in ANOVA. © 2019 Revista Romana de Materiale/Romanian Journal of Materials.
