In this paper effects of aggregate flakiness on the compressive strength of concrete cubes have been studied using experiments. Total 30 cubes have been cast using normal, 5% of 8 mm, 10 mm and 12 mm size of flaky aggregates and 10% of 12mm size of flaky aggregate. NDT of the cast cubes using rebound hammer and ultrasonic pulse velocity have been also carried out. all the cubes were tested for compressive strength. Based on these data, comparative studies have been carried out to quantify the
