Abstract
Now a days the construction industry faces major problems is the easy availability of fine aggregate. Sand is a prime material used for preparation of concrete structures making nearly 40% of volume of concrete used in construction industry. The non-availability or shortage of river sand will affect the construction industry; hence there is a need to find the new alternative material to replace the present fine aggregate. Many researchers are finding different materials to replace sand, as a whole the studies main concerns on the environment and the construction. This paper deals with the possibility of fine aggregate to be replaced by processed sand in various proportions such as 0%, 20%, 40% and 60%. The aim of the project is to study the strength and durability performance of concrete made with fine aggregate and processed sand. The maximum compressive strength of concrete attained at 40% replacement of fine aggregate at 7, 14, and 28 days.
