S now a day’s disposal of solid waste is becoming a major problem and therefore some percentage of the waste in the form of fly ash and glass powder is used to reduce the pollution caused by these elements. The aim of this project is to minimize the use of Ordinary Portland C ement ( OPC) by the replacement of fly Ash (FA) and Glass P owder (GP) in varying proportions and to reduce the effect of solid waste generated due to its daily increasing disposal problems. As a civil engineer thinking of the environment and its adverse effects due to modernization and thinking of the future generations we got the inspiration of using such solid waste in construction field. That’s why formation of interlocking paving block along with fly ash and glass powder as an aggregate is an attempt made by us and various tests such as compressive strength, abrasion resistance test, water absorption test etc. are conducted and compared with ordinary paver blocks units in present study. Trial mixes was prepared of fly ash with glass powder and their results was studied. OPC cement was replaced by 25% with the FA and GP combinations (0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%). Total 104 Specimens are tested by compression testing machine after 7 days & 28 days curing. 54 no’s of specimen for Abrasion .
