Abstract: As the demand of concrete structures is more now days and to emphasizing the usage of eco-friendly materials in concrete, in this project the cement is partially replaced by marble dust powder and sand is partially replaced by waste foundry sand. The practical examination has been carried out in order to determine the strength characteristics of concrete. Moreover, the effect of replacing various percentages of marble dust powder and waste foundry sand on the compressive strength, splitting tensile strength (Indirect tensile strength) & flexural strength has been observed and compared with conventional concrete mix of M30. Marble dust powder and waste foundry sand (MDP 0%:WFS 10%),(MDP0%:WFS 10%),(MDP 10%:WFS 10%),(MDP 10%:WFS 15%),(MDP 15%:WFS 10%),(MDP 15%:WFS 15%) has been used as the partially replacement of cement and sand. As per the investigation, better results are at (MDP 10%: WFS 15%) for all cubes, cylinders and beams.
