Abstract

Concrete is globally recognized for its long term service period in the application of concrete. In the region of five billion tons of concrete are utilized more or less in the planet and increasing every year. In view of the environmental problems faced today considering the fast reduction of natural resources like sand and aggregate. Owing to the growth of Science and Technology in recent decades, there is a modification in the practice of concrete along with some additives as the complement for strength and workability.Basalt Fiber is categorized under the Mineral additive and brought into usage in early 1920’s in the period of World war for Military purposes. Silica fume is hugely known for its durability and it increases the density of concrete. On Another hand, the building are often subjected to risk of corrosion and Sustainability, the application of any element in the proportions of concrete will possess the property of Resisting and rejuvenating the nature of Concrete.
