Abstract

The construction industry uses more resources and produces more waste than any other industrial sector; sustainable development depends on the reduction of both, while providing for a growing global population. The reuse of existing building components could support this goal. In this study, the fine aggregate used in concrete which is river sand and M. sand is been replaced with constructions and demolished waste is been used. For the proper proportion and use an appropriate mix design has been developed. The material used in the study is the construction and demolished waste i.e., the clay brick used in constructing partitions walls and parapet wall, this is being crushed and grained to obtain the size of a fine aggregate. This study, also includes the experimental details of comparison test between compressive strength of conventional concrete and replaced (C&D) concrete for the7th,14 th,21st,28th and 56th days. The significance of the study is that the recycling of the construction and demolished waste could be converted be more useful that just using it as a land filling material with more yield of 5.46 N/mm2 higher compared to conventional concrete.
