Concrete is one of the most utilized and preferred construction materials in almost all the regions of the world. It is mainly known for its compressive strength. Several megastructures such as bridges, spillways, high-rise buildings, dams, etc. require sufficient compressive strength to suitably bear the upcoming large load on them. At the sametime, in recent years, a lot of industrial by-products that are dumped as an industrial waste have attracted attention on concrete technologists. To safeguard the land from becoming the dumping zone/landfill sites, several researchers have come up and utilized these wastes as a supplementary cementitious material (SCM) in concrete. These SCMs can be used either in addition or in replacement of cement. In this paper, the effect of varying particle size and proportion of SCMs on compressive strength of concrete has been reviewed. Efforts have been made to showcase the effective utilization of various industrial by-products in manufacture of concrete with comparable compressive strength.
