Abstract: In this experimental study, different mixtures of Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) were prepared in which fine aggregate was partially replaced by industrial waste materials like quarry dust (QD), glass powder (GP) with varying percentages. The main objective of this study was to investigate the effect of (QD) and (GP) on the mechanical properties of RCC. Flexural and compressive strength were conducted for the ages of 7 days, 28 days and 90 days of curing. The compressive strength values of RCC specimens were increased gradually up to 30% replacement of quarry dust at the age of 7 days and 28 days, beyond 30% replacement there is no considerable increment but up to 40% replacement can also be considered due to higher strength compared to conventional concrete. There are no higher increments in compressive strength when fine aggregate is replaced with glass powder still 30% glass powder can be used as the strength is nearly equal to normal RCC and flexural strength strengths are more than the target.
