Abstract

Now a day's construction work is increasing day by day and concrete is an important material which is required in large quantity for construction. Cost of concrete depends on ingredients used for making concrete such as cement, river sand and coarse aggregate. If the cost of these ingredients is reduced by alternate materials then cost of concrete reduces which ultimately results in reduction in the cost of construction. In the present project work an attempt has been made to use alternate materials so that cost of concrete will reduce. Stone dust has been replaced with river sand, and fly ash with cement in varying quantity. With the replacement of these materials in making concrete a comparable results has been obtained. The use of such waste or by-product materials not only results in economical and sustainable concrete but also it conserves the natural resources and maintain the good environmental conditions.
