In this feasibility study, experimental works with varied water ratio on varied Microwave Incinerator Rice Husk Ash (MIRHA) content as partial cement replacement were investigated. Binder sand ratio of 1 :3 and 1 :4, and replacement of MIRRA content: 5%, 10%, 15%,20%,25%,30%,35%, 40% and 45% were studied. Only two water ratios of 0.5 and 0.55 were used respectively. Several tests were conducted namely compressive strength at 7, 28, and 60 days, water absorption, Intial Rate of Suction (IRS). The compressive strength ranged from 10 MPa to 45 MPa from 7 to 60 days. In general, water absorption and IRS were found to be proportionally inversed with the strength. Highest compressive strength was obtained from binder sand ratio of 1 :3 at water ratio of 0.5 for 15% MIRRA replacement at 60 days. Whilst, lowest compressive strength of 12MPa was obtained from binder sand ratio of 1:4 at water ratio of 0.55 for 45% MIRRA replacement at 60 days.
