Concrete technology was known by the Ancient Romans and was widely used within the Roman Empire. There are certain modifications has been done till today to produce a concrete having developed characteristics. The very common material which is used in construction industry is concrete. In ordinary concrete, the mixture of waste foundry sand and crushed ceramic tiles introduced in the recent area of research in the concrete. Due to the improper method of disposal of waste product like foundry sand which is a byproduct of metal casting industry, causes severe problems to environment. Also the waste ceramic tiles neither can use in other field nor be disposed off and become harmful to environment. Therefore we are using these two waste materials to produce an eco-friendly concrete. The project demonstrate the use of waste foundry sand as a partial replacement for fine aggregate and waste ceramic tiles as a partial replacement for coarse aggregate in the modified concrete. The practical investigation is carried out on a concrete, containing materials like waste foundry sand and waste ceramic tiles in the range of 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% by weight of material for M-25 grade of concrete. The concrete was produced, tested and compared with the conventional concrete in the term of strength. To determine the mechanical properties of concrete the test were carried out on standard size specimens of cube and beam for 7 and 28 days. The purpose of this research is to know the characteristics and mechanical properties of concrete after modification of it by industrial waste in various proportional by taking test like compressive strength and flexural strength. The research is the resource for the exploring the potential use of industrial waste like waste foundry sand and waste ceramic tiles as an alternative to natural raw materials.
