In this work to find some alternative replacement for fine aggregate to save natural resource. The fine aggregate is partially replaced by ceramic waste in various portions (10%, 20%, 30% and 40%) respectively. In this developing world, the alteration of construction materials has become a necessity due to the increasing demand for natural construction materials for rapid urbanization. The sources of natural sand and aggregate are reducing day by day and these are becoming consequently costlier as their demand also increases every day. Meanwhile, industrial wastes from manufacturing units are also increasing. Thus with the aim of utilization of waste to minimize the construction cost for example, ceramic wastes are waste products which are directly released into the environment and can cause pollution, so using such materials as a substitute in fine aggregate can also reduce the disposal problems associated with these materials. In this study we will be finding out the compression properties of cube, split tensile strength of cylinder and flexural strength of beam after 3 days, 7 days and 28 days on replacement by ceramic waste.
