The use of high 1 strength concrete is expected to increase as we move into next 2 century in all areas of world. In recent years there has been a rapid growth of interest in high strength concrete. Concrete is a material used in building construction, consisting of a fine aggregate and a coarse aggregate that is bounded by cement and water with various types of admixtures which are available in market or from the waste materials. A design mix is specified by the designer principally in terms of strength cement content and water cement. Since 3 economical parameters and compressive strength are fundamental properties of concrete in two different stages of production, the correlation between costing parameters and compressive strength has been used instead of using water-cement ratio versus compressive strength relationship. If we maintain the water-cement ratio and by adding various types of admixtures in concrete we can improve the 4 compressive strength of concrete and also get more strength which will be very economical. In the proposed method, the designer is able to estimate parameters like compressive strength and economical costing at the design stage for a given target strength, in addition to 5 ingredients of concrete.

Keywords : 1 strength, 2 century, 3 economical, 4 compressive, 5 ingredients.
