Abstract: The use of alternative materials in production of concrete is being well accepted, since it leads to several possible improvements among in the concrete composites, additionally besides general economy. This paper gives laboratory investigation report about the utilization of ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) as partial replacement of cement, quarry dust (QD) as partial replacement of fine aggregate (FA) and steel slag waste (SSW) as partial replacement of course aggregate (CA). The partial replacement of cement , sand and coarse aggregate were done in different trail mix for M40 grade of concrete separately. The mix trail with different percentage of GGBS, SSW and QD by 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60% and 70% in order to find the optimum percentage use in concrete. From these trial mixes, percentage optimization of GGBS, SSW and QD used in concrete for the further investigation. It was found that 40%, 50% and 60% replacement of GGBS, QD and SSW respectively gives maximum strength to concrete.
