Recent technology has also improved the recycling process. This study aims to Testing of coarse aggregate by using concrete. In this research concrete With the increase in demand for construction materials, there is a strong need to utilize alternative materials for sustainable development. The main objective of this investigation is to study the properties, such as compressive strength and tensile strengths of lightweight concrete containing Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) beads. Its properties are
more » ... Its properties are compared with those of the normal concrete i.e., without EPS beads. EPS beads are used as partial replacement to coarse aggregates. Water absorption test, specific gravity test ,sieve analysis test, mix design, slump test, compressive strength test for all The major test are computed .
