Concrete is a homogeneous material which is formed by mixing of Cement Sand and Aggregate in presence of water. Generally cement is used as binder material and sand as filler material which occupies the voids between aggregate. Aggregate is the most common material in concrete and it occupies more than 70-80% of total volume in concrete and it provides strength to the concrete. Now a days due to huge demand of concrete in construction work it is essential to developed or find such sources or material which can replace sand and aggregate in concrete. As aggregate is most common material in concrete and it is acquired from crushing of stones in stone queries which requires huge manpower and mechanical equipment. While crushing of stones it produces very small dust particles having less density and get easily mixed with air which creates adverse impact on environment as well as on the health of the workers at the sight. Concrete is a homogenous mixture of Binder (Cement), Fine aggregate and Coarse aggregate with adequate water – cement ratio.
