The effects of admixtures on mechanical properties is well known and hence are used in industry for enhancing the same. However using admixtures to improve durability is not conventional. Therefore study of effect of admixtures on durability property is significant. In this paper a review study on effect of Fly Ash, Silica Fume,Zeolite and Metakaolin on water absorption, sulphate attack, chloride ion penetration, Sorptivity, carbonation, alkali silica reaction and freeze thaw cycle has been done.
