Keywords: Fly Ash | workability | Compressive Strength | Splitting Tensile Strength | Bond strength | Pull out test.

In this study, the effect of fly ash on concrete workability, compressive strength, splitting tensile strength and bond strength was investigated. The ordinary Portland cement was replaced with 5 to 50% fly ash, it was observed that 10 % fly ash showed the highest compressive strength at all ages, use of 15%-30% fly ash significantly increased the compressive strength at 90 and 180 days. The fly ash improved the bond strength of concrete at all replacement levels. It was concluded that 10%FA and 15%FA were the optimum replacement levels for all the investigated properties.
