Abstract: Due to increased construction practices there was a very high demand in consumption of raw materials that are to be used in concrete. In the raw materials, sand is one of the major construction materials that is consumed adequately. It’s presence will be vanished due to excessive digging .The effect will be to the nearby localities .As well the stability hydraulic structures nearby river banks will be affected with this. To reduce digging practices the fine aggregate was partially replaced with waste crushed glass in 0%,10%,20%,30% andv40% along with 0.25%Super plasticizer SP 430 to achieve workability. The crushed glass is non-biodegradable and cannot be disposed off, also causes several environmental effects. By utilizing this waste as a useful material in the form as replacing material of fine aggregate we can reduce the waste content and in the same way it can be used as a resource. In order to check the concrete strength and durability tests like Compressive strength test, Split tensile strength test, Flexural strength test for 7,14,28 days curing and acid attack test, rapid chloride permeability test, Abrasion tests were conducted. SEM tests are also conducted on concrete with replaced fine aggregate. The current research work describes the proper utilization of waste crushed glass as a useful construction material.
