Abstract: Paper Construction industry has been conducted various studies on the utilization of waste materials in concrete productions in order to decrease the usage of natural resources. This research paper exhibits the evaluation and the effective reuse of waste construction materials and industries, such as cuddapah waste aggregate as partial replacement of conventional coarse aggregate and copper slag as partial replacement of river sand (fine aggregate). Experiments were conducted to find out the mechanical properties of concrete such as compressive, splitting tensile, flexural strengths and the modulus of elasticity of concrete for waste materials aggregate concrete and to compare them with those of conventional aggregate concrete. Results appear that waste materials in concrete have the potential to produce good quality concrete mixtures.
