Author(s): Abdul Alim Ghayouri, Abhishek Singh Rana & Abdul Alim Ghayuori

Concrete is one of the highly utilized material in construction and consume large amount of natural resources in form of fine aggregates and coarse aggregates as well as while making cement lots of natural resources are used. In this research paper Quartz Dust and Hydrate Lime is used to prepare concrete mix and replaced with cement and fine aggregates respectively. Various tests on concrete are performed to check strength characteristics of concrete like Split Tensile Test, Flexural Strength Test and Compressive Strength Test are performed and contrasted with conventional concrete mix. Tests are conducted on M30 grade of concrete according to Indian Standards. Various mix samples of Quartz Dust and Hydrated Lime as (0%QD: 10%HL), (0%QD: 15%HL), (10%QD: 10%HL), (10%QD: 15%HL), (15%QD: 10%HL) and (15%QD: 15%HL) has been used.
