In recent years, significant attention has been given to use superplasticizer as a chemical admixture on concrete. However, the use of chemical admixtures in concrete is a common solution to achieve high performance concrete. The past researchers have been underscored the use of chemical admixtures imparts the desirable properties to concrete in both fresh and hardened state. This paper has been made an attempt to study the influence of superplasticizer dose of 0.6, 0.8, 1.2, 1.8 and 2.5 percentage on performance of concrete. The experimental tests for fresh and hardened properties of concrete for M35 grade are studied and the results are compared with normal concrete. The tests considered for study are, slump test and compressive strength test The results show that the increase of superplasticizer dose in concrete leads to gain of good ability in addition to slump. Moreover, there is also slightly increase in compressive strength than that of normal concrete.
