Abstract: The proposed study present behaviour of concrete with inclusion of waste foundry sand (WFS), waste glass, and glass fiber in different concrete trial mixes. Waste foundry sand (WFS) is basically by-product formed from metal casting industries ferrous or non-ferrous, which due to rapid concrete construction in world used as an alternative of sand. Waste glass can be used in concrete in crushed form as a replacement of aggregate or in powdered form as a replacement of cement, the only problem with waste glass is it is prone to alkali-silica reaction due to different composition of different types of glasses. Glass fiber is added with waste glass and waste foundry sand (WFS) to increase strength. Normal concrete grade M25 (1:1:2) is used for this experimental purpose, different concrete trials were casted which consist of replacement of sand with waste foundry sand in different proportion (0%, 10%, 20%, and 30%). Next trial consists of optimum value of (WFS) with different proportion of waste glass (0%, 10%, and 20%, 30%) as a replacement of fine aggregate. Final trial consists of addition of glass fiber (0%, 0.25%, 0.50%, and 0.75%) in optimum value of second trial. Mechanical properties of concrete compressive strength, split-tensile strength, flexural strength was examined at 7, 14, 28, and 56 days curing period.
