Concrete is commonly used building material, and it is extensively used, hence this project is aimed to reduce the use of natural sand by using crushed rock powder(CRP) as a replacement for fine aggregate in concrete .Thereby reducing the exhaustion on natural sand. The project involves the process in which fine aggregate in concrete is replaced by CRP at 0%, 20%, 40% and 60% replacement. Grade of concrete M25 is selected for the project. The project includes determination of compressive strength and split tensile strength at the ages of 7 days and 28 days. The strength properties of concrete with CRP replacement are compared with that of Normal Concrete (NC) which does not contain CRP.
