Abstract: Stone waste is one of the most active research areas that encompass a number of disciplines including civil engineering and construction materials. In India, stone dust is settled by sedimentation and then dumped away which results in environmental pollution, in addition to forming dust in summer and threatening both agriculture and public health. Therefore, utilization of the stone dust in various industrial sectors especially the construction, agriculture, glass and paper industries would help to protect the environment. It is most essential to develop eco-friendly concrete from stone waste.In this research study the(PPC) cement has been replaced by stone waste accordingly in the range of 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% 40%, & 50% by weight for M-25 grade concrete. Concrete mixtures were produced, tested and compared in terms of workability and strength to the conventional concrete. These tests were carried out to evaluate the mechanical properties for 7, 14 and 28 days. As a result, the compressive strength increased up to 20% replacing of stone waste. This research work is concerned with the experimental investigation on strength of concrete and optimum percentage of the partial replacement by replacing (PPC) cement via 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50% of stone waste. Keeping all this view, the aim of the investigation is the behavior of concrete while replacing of waste with different proportions of stone waste in concrete by using tests like compression strength.
