Study of Different Types of Concrete

Sajal Tiwari, Rahul Rathore


The main objective of the present paper is to study about the different types of concrete and its use according to its properties in different areas in our thesis we have briefly discussed about the property of the concrete. In this thesis, the use of concrete along with the addition of other material to make is more economical for the use and to get proper strength with addition of the other fiber in concrete-Concrete is one of the most versatile building materials. It can be cast to fit any structural shape. It is readily available in urban areas at relatively low cost.
