This paper is part of a study investigating the structural characteristics of concrete using various combinations of lateritic sand and quarry dust as complete replacement for conventional river sand fine aggregate. Samples of concrete cube were made using varying contents of laterite and quarry dust as fine aggregate. The quantity of laterite was varied from 0% to 100% against quarry dust at intervals of 25%. The samples were cured for specified periods and tested in the laboratory for compressive strength. Workability tests were earlier carried out to determine the optimum water/cement ratios for three different mixes. M20 mix was designed as per IS specification with water cement ratio 0.50.
