A Concrete use around the world is second only to water. The production of ordinary Portland cement contributes 5-7% of total greenhouse gas emission. It also consumes large amount energy. Hence it is essential to find alternative to cement. Due to the demand of need of high amount of cement in construction it would be suggestible to reduce the consumption of cement by partially replacing the cement with another materials. The Ceramic Dust which comes from industrial waste by manufacturing tiles and bricks. It will be more economical & cheap and also gives good impact on environment. The main aim of this study represents the strength properties of concrete using Ceramic dust, Basalt powder and with addition of Recron3s fiber. In our project , cement has been partially replaced with 20% of ceramic dust as constant and fine aggregate has replaced by Basalt powder accordingly in the range of 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50% respectively. The addition of Recron3s fiber at constant proportion of 0.3% respectively. The optimum values will be taken by through the tests such as Compressive strength test, Split tensile strength test, Flexural strength test, Density, Rebound hammer test by 7, 28 days respectively with M40 grade of concrete.
