The magnetic water has been used in different fields like agriculture, health, constructions, etc. Concrete mixes designed were prepared using tap water (TW) and another set of concrete mixes designed of the same proportions were also prepared using magnetized water (MFPW) in the laboratory to prepare the testing specimens. Assessment of the Concrete strength was performed to determine the effect of using magnetized water. The compression parameters included the mechanical properties and the consistency of fresh concrete. The change in water surface tension and the positive results of the concrete evaluation is evidence of the positive effect of using magnetized water in preparing concrete. This research deals with the workability, compressive strength of concrete mixed with magnetic water containing Silica as partial replacement of cement at 7% & 10% respectively at curing age of 7days, 28days,60 days & 90 days .Magnetic water was taken by passing tap water through magnetic field of 0.4Tesla . More mixes were prepared to check the optimum results and the mix used was 65% cement 25% fly ash and 10% Silica using tap water and MFPW. Portland cement properties of Concrete have also been evaluated. This research gives an idea to understand the effect and have an overlook of silica induced fume with magnetic field polarized water in Concrete. Also we had found that the initial surface absorption reduces as the percentage of silica induces fumes with MFPW increases. The optimum results for durability were found at 10%silica replacement using MFPW
