Since the last decade, Due to increasing population and rising demand for building materials. It has become a challenge for civil engineers to produce and use alternate materials. The constant developmental activities in civil engineering and growing industrial activities have created nonstop demand for building materials which satisfy all the strict conditions regarding the short-term and long-term performance of the structure. As the structures of tomorrow become higher and more complex, the materials of construction will be required to meet more demanding standards of performance than those in force today (2006). India's present housing shortage is estimated to be as high as 31 million according to the census and out of these shortages 24 million units are in rural areas and 7 million units in urban areas. Such large housing construction activities require a huge amount of money. Out of this total cost of housing construction, building materials contribute to about 70% of the cost in developing countries like India. The increase in the popularity of using environment-friendly, low-cost and lightweight construction materials in the building industry has brought about the need to investigate how this can be achieved by benefiting the environment as well as maintaining the material.
