Heterogeneity of aggregate in concrete has been monitored in different developed mixed design concrete by experts applying different curing techniques. Their findings have always reflected the variation of aggregate size as one of the major influential property that determined various rates of tensile, based on its compressive strength. The behaviour are basically on the effect from aggregate shapes that reflect on the generated results on the model concrete, but other parameters that express impact on the variation rate of tensile strength are not always determined, because of the limitation of experimental techniques including the concept of ignoring these other parameters on concrete properties , these are other major significant areas that will determine various rate of tensile partially replaced cement with Metakaolin substance, the study applied modeling and simulation using derived analytical solution, the developed model generated simulation values that produced various rates of tensile strength parameters at the optimum values recorded at ninety days of curing, decrease of the tensile were observed based on the reflection of aggregate heterogeneity, compaction rate mixed time and curing techniques were experienced in the study, the impact of heterogeneous aggregate on tensile strength including variation of water cement ratios were observed, the predictive and experimental values were monitored and both parameters developed best fits. The study is imperative because the application of simulation techniques has expressed the impact of various parameters that there impact were not observed in the experimental development of concrete generating tensile strength.
