Three different types of husks were used, Wheat Straw, Rice Straw, and Rice Husk. The X-ray diffraction and the chemical analysis were carried out on the three wheat and rice husk ashes. The purposes were to verify the pozolanic reactivity and the existence of any harmful ingredients. The percentage of the husk ashes were 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20% of the weight of the cement. The workability was measured by the slump test. The densities of the different mixes were computed. The pulse velocity and the sorptivity were also computed. The compressive and tensile strengths were also estimated.
