of beneficial utilization of used foundry sand in concrete as a partial replacement of regular sand by studying properties of both fresh and hardened concrete. An extensive literature search was undertaken and tests were conducted on byproduct samples to determine their physical properties to evaluate the possible uses (Naik et al. 1991, 1992).
The properties of concrete containing foundry sand as a partial replacement of fine aggregate were investigated. Three types of sand used in foundries were considered, the white fine sand without the addition of clay and coal, the foundry sand before casting (blended), and the foundry sand
An experimental study was carried out to investigate the strength properties of concrete produced with iron filings as partial replacement for sand. Concrete specimens (cubes, cylinders and prisms) were cast and tested for compressive, splittensile

This study involved 86 experiments and 254 tests to determine the efficiency of reusing waste plastic in the production of concrete. Thirty kilograms of waste plastic of fabriform shapes was used as a partial replacement for sand by 0%, 10%, 15%, and 20% with 800 kg of concrete mixtures. All of the concrete mixtures were tested at room temperature.
Also, the use of quarry dust as the fine aggregate decreases the cost of concrete production in terms of the partial replacement for natural river sand. Design mix of M25grade concrete with replacement of 0%, 20%, 25%, 30%, and 35% of quarry dust organized as M1, M2, M3, M4 and M5 respectively have been considered for laboratory analysis viz
