Abstract. Cement being a major contributor to carbon emission needs a revolution in its production or modification to the existing cement. One such way to reduce cement usage is to replace the cementitious compound with a suitable material that does not alter the original purpose of cement in concrete. The sugarcane bagasse ashes (SCBA), which are ashes from biomass burning, are found to act as supplementary cementitious material. Moreover, studies were conducted to relate the strength and durability of concrete by the percentage of replacement of sugarcane bagasse ash to cement. The studies revealed that the SCBA imparts more strength to cement at 10% replacement when compared to 20% replacement. However, this study is intended to use 20% of SCBA replacement in cement by adding silica fume. Concrete being mainly reinforced with steel has the problem of corrosion. To overcome the problem of corrosion as well as to reduce the use of cement and to attain the compressive strength of 10% replacement of SCBA. This experiment is intended to analyze the behavior of concrete up to 20% replacement of SCBA with silica fume at different concentrations such as 0%,5%,10%,15%.
