Abstract: As construction in India and other developing countries are increasing, the consumption of energy and resources are also increasing in same alarming way. Due to urbanization many industries are developed and the industrial wastage is also increasing day by day which is a serious concern to the environment. Many industries produce various end products, which may be used in construction industry at various places. So we focused on some of the waste materials which can be replaced in conventional concrete, and by then cost of construction can be reduced and is economical, also damage caused to the environment can also be reduced, at the same time landfills can also be reduced. So, we focused on reducing the virgin materials in concrete like cement, fine aggregate and coarse aggregate by replacing them with some waste materials which have same properties of cement, fine aggregate and coarse aggregate. The objective of the present work is to find out the effectiveness of fly ash, quarry dust and crumb rubber by replacing them in varied percentages. Here, cement is replaced by fly ash with percentages as 30%, 40%, 50%, 60% and quarry dust as fine aggregate with percentages of 20%, 30%, 40%, 50% along with crumb rubber as coarse aggregate with percentages as 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%. The results in this study have shown a gradual reduction of compressive strength as we kept on adding the crumbed rubber. Even though the strength obtained for 5% usage of crumbed rubber was quite satisfactory.
