Compressive strength is a crucial factor that influences the longevity and structural integrity of concrete, which is a material that is used extensively in building. The purpose of this study is to contribute several kinds of curing techniques for improved compressive strength. This paper describes how to produce concrete with a higher compressive strength by substituting some cementitious elements, such as fly ash, quartz powder, nano silica, and silica fume, for Portland cement. This concrete mixture had recron fibers measuring 12 mm in length, standard fine aggregate sized 300 µm, and crushed coarse material measuring 4.75 mm. W/b ratio in this mixture is 0.34. The final concrete was allowed to cure for three days at 900C in hot water, and after 28 days, its compressive strength was measured using a hand mix. With 2.2% of 12 mm length fibers in the hand mix, the experimental concrete including recron fibers had the highest average compressive strengths, reaching 45.89 N/mm2. The results offer significant perspectives on optimizing concrete blends and curing procedures to attain exceptional compressive strength. This research contributes to the ongoing effort in sustainable construction by identifying ways to enhance the mechanical properties of concrete while minimizing resource consumption.
