High Performance Concrete (HPC) is a propelled sort of concrete that can increase the strength and versatility of concrete structures. For many years, High performance concrete (HPC) is the innovative type of concrete. It has been developed and used for many purpose in construction results in increased characteristics compared to conventional concrete. Fly ash, Silica fume, Quarry Dust has been popularly used in as mineral admixtures and along with that water also used as natural admixture in HPC to improve the mechanical properties. The utilization of nearby materials is a principal venture to spare materials and vitality and lessen the cost of concrete. The cement has been partially replaced with silica fume, combination of coconut shell and eggshell ash (with equal proportions). In order to found out the mechanical properties of High-Performance concrete, concrete specimens were casted and tested for 7, 28 days up to failure. In this investigation the mechanical properties of HPC are compared to Controlled Specimens.

Keywords: Mechanical Properties, Silica Fume, Combination of Coconut shell and Egg shell ash, Compressive strength, Tensile strength, Flexural Strength, Mineral Admixture.
