Concrete plays a vital role as a construction material in the world. Studies have been carried out to investigate the possibility of utilizing a broad range of materials as partial replacement for cement and aggregate in the production of concrete. Also the construction industry is now slowly becoming aware of the environmental issues and other sustainable development issues for cement and concrete industries. It is looking for the ways and means to develop building products, which will increase the life span and quality. In this regard the merits of using ground granulated blast furnace which is a by-product of certain industries and also by using different fine aggregates like sea sand, foundry sand and crusher dust have been well recognized by the construction industry. This thesis presents an experimental investigation on strength aspects like compressive, split tensile and flexural strength of Self Compacting Concrete (SSC) containing two different industrial wastes as fine aggregate i.e. Foundry sand and Crusher dust. Both of them are used as fine aggregates in varying proportions, taking foundry sand as the fine aggregate and replacing it with Crusher dust as percentages of 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%. For this green SCC, all SCC tests are performed as per EFNARC guidelines i.e. slump flow, L-box, V funnel and T50 tests are carried out. The methodology adopted is that the fine aggregates are replaced with the industrial wastes, foundry sand and crusher dust and the performance of SCC is measured. The influence of these materials as fine aggregate is tested for workability and compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength of self-compacting are investigated.
