From decades it is common in construction to Consume natural resources. In construction industries, demand of construction materials is never come down and that is why there is need to focus on alternative construction material. If waste material like waste foundry sand, silica fume, glass powder is used as an alternative construction material then it can help to reduce the amount of disposal material. The research is conducted to compare concrete performance between conventional mix trial and a mix with addition of Waste Foundry Sand, Silica fume & Glass powder in different concrete mix trial and check how concrete behave by addition of these (Waste Foundry Sand, Silica fume & Glass powder in different concrete mix trial). By utilizing waste like waste foundry sand as a partial replacement of natural sand in concrete mix to create eco-friendly environment so that we can reduce the consumption of our natural resources. The replacement of cement with silica fume in small portions can be feasible due to the high reactivity of silica fume with calcium hydroxidethatis produced during the hydration of Portland cement. The experimental investigation was performed to evaluate the strength and durability properties of concrete mixture, a total of 4 concrete mix trial will be prepared and evaluate. First concrete mix trial will be made as a conventional mix trial. Second concrete mix trial will be made as are placement of naturals and with waste foundry sand by weight (10%, 20%, 30%). Third mix trial will be made by taking the optimum value of WSF from trial second and silica fume is added with replacement of cement by weight (5%, 10%, 15%). Fourth trial mix will be made as a replacement of natural sand with waste foundry by weight (taking optimum from trial second) and glass powder is added with a replacement of cement by weight of cement (5%, 10%, &15%). Compression, split-tensile strength & flexural strength test will be carried out on 7th, 14th, 28th, &56thday. After evaluating the test result of each trial mix, finally we will compare the final result of each trial mix and see how concrete behaves in each concrete mix trials
