This paper discuss the effect of white cement on concrete properties such as fresh properties (slump), mass transport properties (Isat-sorptivity) and mechanical properties (compressive-splitting tensile). The thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) of cement paste containing various blending of white cement with SRPC is also investigated. Concrete specimens were prepared with SRPC, water, sand and dolomite of 10 mm maximum nominal size. The blending of white cement with SRPC were 0, 10, 20,30,40,50

The results indicated that, 30 % percentage of white cement to SRPC exhibited peak slump, the maximum compressive and splitting strength were observed at 30 % percentage of white cement to SRPC .Also, the lowest values of Isat and sorptivity were occurred at 30 % percentage of white cement to SRPC which agree with the results of compressive and splitting strength. 10 % SF has an adverse effect on compressive strength of concrete containing various percentage of white cement.
