Abstract: The increasing demand and consumption of construction materials create a bottle neck shortage of construction materials this make the researcher and engineer to focus on new material and method for waste reduction and this is for the cost-effective, green and scientific reasons. Sugarcane bagasse ash (SCBA) which is obtained as a secondary product from sugar industry has relatively high silica content has the capacity to react with cement, contribute in increasing the strength of concrete. Copper slag (CS) the secondary manufactured goods from the process of being making copper, it is absolutely lifeless substance that their characteristics are exactly matching with usual sand which is used in construction and may be replaced in concrete. The effect of earthed Sugarcane bagasse ash (SCBA) and copper slag (CS) on the strength and flexural behavior is studied. A total of 25 % SCBA by mass was replaced in case of Portland cement and a total of 60 % by mass of CS was used as a fine aggregate replacement. The strength and flexural behavior of concrete samples were studied using compression test and two-point loading tests. The capacity of the objects framed based on actual concrete and secondary product based concrete were evaluated with standard tests. Five sequence of mixing in concrete proportion were organized by means of SCBA restore cement by 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25% by weight of cement and its 14 & 28 day strength were found out and the other mix with constant SCBA and varying percentage of Copper slag were prepared with 40, 45, 50, 55 and 60 % of copper slag for fine aggregate the 14 & 28 day strength were found. Flexural behavior of SCBA and CS combination were found using RCC beams. It has been engaged that SCBA and CS are better substitute for cement and fine aggregate.
