The main constituent for constructing a building is concrete and at the same time majority of waste is produced during demolition of building. Now a days construction sectors and manufacturing industries has increased the evolution of residues. On behalf of utilization of industrial waste as well to minimize the construction material cost, some materials can replace as the by-product of concrete. In order to reduce the dumping of waste, it can be used as a replacement material in producing concrete which will make the environment pollution free. In the field of civil engineering and construction materials it has been found that ceramic waste is one of the major waste material and become most effective research area. Ceramic wall tiles are used as building material in the field of construction. In this study, the Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) has been replaced by crushed ceramic tile powder of various percentage such as 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%. Concrete cubes and paver block were casted, tested and compared with conventional cubes and blocks by finding their compressive strength through experimental investigation. The test were carried out to evaluate the hardened properties of cubes and blocks for 14 and 28 days. The main objective of this study is to find the performance characteristics of cubes and paver block by using ceramic waste as a replacing material for cement. Citation: S.
