Currently India has taken a major initiative on developing the infrastructures such as express highways, power projects, ports and harbors, to meet the requirements of globalization, in the construction of pavements and other structures concrete plays the key role and a large quantum of concrete is being utilized in every construction practices. The consumption of natural resources as an ingredient of concrete, costs high as well as it is on verge of extent. These problems force us to recover

Presently, the production of waste foundry sand as a by-product of metal casting industries causes various environmental problems. Foundry sand is basically high quality silica sand which is a by-product of both ferrous and non-ferrous metal casting industries. Foundry sand production is nearly 6 to 10 million tons annually. Like many waste products, foundry sand has beneficial applications to other industries. Metal industries use foundry sand which is uniform sized, high quality silica sand that is bound to form a mould for casting of ferrous and non-ferrous metal. In this research paper, As per IS: 10262-1982 mix design was prepared for M25 grade and same design was used in preparation of test samples. The Sand is replaced with foundary sand by 15 %, 30 % and 45 % replacement.
