The high mechanical strength of the concrete is the most important property of its application. It is depended on many well
studied factors (the water???cement ratio, porosity etc.). It is known that the strength of concrete increases with the addition
of microdispersed additives of different chemical composition. However there are very contradictory experimental data about
mass fraction of the microdispersed additives to strengthen concrete. In our opinion the possible reason of such discrepancy of the
experimental data may be the different size of microdispersed additives used. The aim of this paper is to experimentally study the
effect of the particle size and mass fraction of the different microdispersed additives on the strength of the concrete. The results of
mechanical strength tests of fine-grained concrete from the dispersity and the mass fraction of additives, reactive silica fume and
inert diopside are presented. It has been shown that the optimum amount providing greater reinforcement samples decreased with
decrease in the dispersity of inert mineral additive. It was found that the optimal ratio of silica fume and the diopside to maximize the
strength properties of the material. In this case the strength characteristics of the fine-grained concrete has the strength characteristics
of 2.5 times higher than the control sample.
