Concrete is used widely in all types of constructions ranging from small buildings to large structures like dams or reservoirs. It is the most widely used construction material to improve the strength& quality of structural elements. Sand is one of the important ingredients in the making of concrete but the availability of sand is a tedious task. For the protection of environment, almost all local governments have to be taken a decision to minimize sand excavation for utilization in construction. The current study an attempt has been made to studying the behavior of the concrete made by partial replacement of sand with Stone Crusher Dust (SCD) using admixture. The design mix prepared for M53 grade concrete as per IS Code and fine aggregate has been replaced by Stone Crusher Dust at 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50% by weight. The strength tests have been made to study for 3, 7 and 28days curing period.
