Summary:

In this modern world, building structures have their own requirements in terms of design and durability. To satisfy this requirement of the structural integrity of each structure, modification of traditional cement concrete has become mandatory. Plain concrete (PC) is a fragile material with low tensile strength and may crack under traction. Randomly distributed basalt fibers can bind these cracks and hinder their development. Copper smelting is an industrial by-product obtained during copper slag increase the workability of concrete. Green concrete is concrete which uses waste material as at least one of its components, which does not lead to environmental destruction or it has high performance and life cycle sustainability. This experimental work was conducted on concrete samples containing cut basalt fiber as replacement by weight of cement in concrete and copper slag as a partial replacement of a fine aggregate by copper slag by weight. The standard cube measure the compressive strength, water absorption test and durability test to evaluate the properties. Also cost compared to the control mixes of M25 grade.
