In this study, the properties of concrete with different amounts of Ground Granulated Blast-Furnace Slag (GGBFS) has been studied. In another part, the test deals to assess the properties of concrete containing GGBFS with micro-SiO2. The results show that the slag has pozzolan properties and its use up to 20% in the concrete, has no harmful effect on concrete properties. The simultaneous use of micro-SiO2 with blast furnace slag have little effect, as well as micro-SiO2 covers the defects

The results indicate that the use of micro-SiO2 and slag has good effects on the strength of concrete up to a certain age, so that its compressive strength is increased. Water-cement ratio was 0.42 and 12.5 mm for maximum size of aggregate and cement content in concrete was 425 kg per cubic meter. Compressive strength of concrete samples was measured at ages 7, 28, 56 and 90-day and flexural and tensile strength and water absorption after 28-day and 90 days also was measured.
