In this paper, an experimental investigation is conducted to study the changes in the physical properties of concrete when alccofine 1203 is used in the concrete mix as a partial substitute for cement. This paper also aims at studying the effect in the properties of concrete mix that are caused when it is subjected to different types of curing regime. For this study, concrete mix of M35 grade is prepared and the proportion of alccofine in the concrete mix as a substitute material for cement is gradually increased at a rate of 5% i.e, concrete mix with 0%,5%,10%,15% & 20% alccofine measured by weight of cement. For the purpose of studying the early strength gain development, the cube samples were tested at ages of 3days, 7 days and 28 day for compressive strength while for the flexural strength the beam samples were tested at the age of 28 days. All the concrete samples made with different replacement proportions were then subjected to three different curing regimes separately. According to data obtained from this experiment, it indicates that there is overall increase in the strength of the concrete mix. Also water immersion curing gave the best results.
