Abstract. Replacing cement with fly ash has recently created huge popularity among the construction field because of its huge production, efficient resources and sustainability aspect. This study is made to determine the High-Volume fly-ash concrete (HVFC) performance by adding additives. The general used concrete mixture is prepared by proportioning fly ash (40-50%) as a replacement. The concrete specimen was found to have better compressive strengths and hence, passed the strength tests. By incorporating additive Nano-SiO2 and superplasticizer the following compression, flexural rigidity, splitting tensile strength and elasticity modulus were observed in the specimen to establish the cement and fly ash bond. The concrete performance mix with replacement fly ash at different percent was found to have good compressive strength during test and stayed undamaged during the entire period of exposure.
