Abstract: High-strength concrete is indeed a new progression in concrete technology. It groups compressive strength of 40 MPa or above. Since HSC is another kind of solid, it has not been broadly utilized by the designers. Because of absence of research, it has just been utilized as a part of some reinforced concrete members and few large and precise structures. In our study, we will try to discover the ideal extent of mineral admixture with cement to accomplish most extreme packing density and make a mix design based on the obtained results. We will be utilized five mineral admixtures as a pozzolanic material in cement. The mineral admixtures utilized were Quartz powder, Fly ash, Metakaolin, Ultra-fine slag and Rice-husk ash. A third-generation superplasticizer will also be additionally used to set up the mix design with a specific end goal to minimize the water necessity for cement hydration. In this study we will also like to address two challenges that are commonly faced with concrete. One is the negative impact produced on environment due to huge Carbon Dioxide emission during cement manufacturing. We will try to in cooperate some greener materials partially replacing the cement in order to reduce harsh effect on environment.
