The study purpose of this Study is to monitor the growth rate of strain from modification of concrete with fly ash and super plasticizer, the study express the behavior of strain under the influences of these additive's, the research work provided the platform whereby the strain can be monitored considering some predominant concrete characteristics such as void ratios, porosity and water cement ratios. These are reflected on the variation of strain as expressed from the figures, linear trend were observed, but variation of strain were also experienced in various figures, the study observed the behavior of strain in concrete, such subjection of stress are through an applied load that generates cracks on concrete when tensile strain exceed its capacity. Measuring the deformation of these materials is though the applied load, the study has experienced strain behavior on concrete when combined with materials characteristic modulus. These condition were observed on the study through the developed model modified with fly ash and super plasticizer, the results express how these parameters affect strain from mixed designed concrete, predictive values were simulated numerically to determine the strain at every twenty four hours, this were to monitor strain increase within twenty four hours to the optimum values recorded at ninety days, predictive values were subjected to validation, and both parameters generated best fits correlation.
