The main constituent for constructing a building is concrete and at the same time majority of waste is produced during demolition of building. Now a day’s construction sectors and manufacturing industries has increased the evolution of residues. On behalf of utilization of construction waste as well to minimize the construction material cost, some materials can replace as the by-product of concrete. In order to reduce the dumping of waste, it can be used as a replacement material in producing concrete which will make the environment pollution free. In the field of civil engineering and construction materials it has been found that ceramic waste is one of the major waste materials and become most effective research area. Ceramic tiles are used as building material in the field of construction. The ceramic tile waste at the construction site was used as replacement of cement in concrete. The aim of this study was to investigate the compressive strength characteristics of concrete formed with partial replacement of cement by ceramic tile powder. In this study, the Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) in M30 grade of concrete was replaced by crushed ceramic tile powder of various percentage such as 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20%. Concrete cubes were casted, tested and compared with conventional cubes by finding their compressive strength through experimental investigation. The tests were carried out to evaluate the compressive strength characteristics of cubes for 7 and 28 days. On studying results it was found out that the compressive strength of the concrete decreases with addition of ceramic tile powder. But, the change in the compressive strength of the concrete was less, so ceramic tile powder can be used as a partial replacement of cement in concrete to a certain amount.
