Concrete structures are the most preferred in building construction. consists of multiple components like fine aggregate, which coarse aggregate plays a major demand in making light weight c by replacing the coarse aggregate with lighter weight aggreg coarse aggregate is repla Total of forty beams were casted and tested. Twenty beams with conventional concrete and twenty beams with coconut shell concrete and compared with other. All the specimens were tested for compressive strength and rupture. of coconut shell concrete conventional concrete were compared. modulus of rupture of coconut shell was found to be higher than that of concrete. Conventional concrete has attained lesser density while comparing it with coconut shell concrete.
