Mineral admixtures like flyash metakolin rice husk ash silica fume and ggbfs are mixed in concrete to vary its properties like durability strength and workability know various advantages disadvantages and mix proportions of each of these mineral admixtures used in concrete. A material other than water aggregates or cement that is used as an ingredient of concrete or mortar to control setting and early hardening workability or to provide additional cementing properties admixtures are generally used to alter the properties of concrete such as increased workability or reduced water content acceleration or retardation of setting time. Because mineral admixtures have an ability to enhance workability as well as finish ability of freshly laid concrete mineral admixtures are also utilized as a replacement of cement as cement is the most expensive material in concrete hence with the use of mineral admixtures reducing concrete cost is very likely possible. Written to meet the requirements of engineers working in construction and concrete manufacturing mineral admixtures in cement and concrete focuses on how to make more workable and durable concrete using mineral admixtures in particular it covers pulverized fuel ash pfa blast furnace slag bfs. As an outcome of the experience gained in cement and construction industry i also published a book on mineral admixtures in cement and concrete with crc press usa 2 i was honored as
