Abstract: Eco sand is a very fine particle, which is a by-product from the cement manufacturing industry by semi-wet process and it can be a good alternative for natural river sand. Due to its very finely powdered crystalline silica particles present in that which can replace up to 50% of conventional sand usage in concrete and mortars. It can be used in the concrete by replacement of fine aggregates by a certain percentage which gives much more efficiency. In this paper, the hardened properties like cube compressive strength, cylinder split tensile strength, and prism flexural strength are studied with various replacements cement with fly ash like 0 % and 30% and sand with eco sand-like 0%,30%,40%,50% and 60%. The results are compared with conventional concrete specimens. Experimental results also show that the hardened properties of concrete are increased by a certain amount when compared with the normal placed concrete specimens. During the study Due to replacement of fine aggregate with eco sand for workability conditions by some amount of chemical admixtures have been added.
