In India different waste are generated from the different industrial, mining, and agricultural process. This waste causing major environment problem due to lager area required for their disposal. There are many scopes to use such waste or by-product in many construction materials by using them as addition or replacement in different construction materials. Brick is the most important building material used in the construction. Basically, cement brick is the mixture of the cement, fine aggregate and water. The use of the cement brick increases the use of cement. So, the uses of different industrial waste or a byproduct to reduces the use of cement and also reduce the environmental problem. It also helps to reduce the cost of the materials and gives the ecofriendly material and sustainable materials. By using industrial waste in the cement brick enhance the physical and mechanical properties of the cement brick. This study is conducted to identify the different uses of industrial waste such as fly ash in cement brick. The cement is replaced by fly ash at 0%, 5%, 10% and 15%. These fly ash cement brick tested in compression test and water absorption. Test gives high compressive strength and low water absorption at 15% replacement of cement by fly ash. Concrete, steel and bricks are commonly used materials in construction practice, of which, bricks are most commonly used constituent. Masonry walls are commonly used in partition thereby large numbers of brick elements are required in construction of building. In this paper, various types of manufacturing of bricks were studied. Optimum percentage of fly ash using various combinations of material in the brick like lime, cement and clay are studied and their effect on different properties of bricks have been discussed. The parameters considered in this study are compressive strength, water absorption and durability of bricks with fly ash, and are checked with codal provisions for brick elements.
