Concrete, a homogeneous mixture of cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water is widely been used in construction activities. But cement and fine aggregate are becoming consequently costlier and their demand also increases every day. Meanwhile, industrial waste from manufacturing units also increases. On behalf ofutilization of industrial waste as well to minimize the construction material cost, some materials can replace the by-product of concrete. In this study we have chosen ceramic powder and copper slag as a replacement of cement and fine aggregate. More studies were carried out replacing cement but ceramic powder and replacing fine aggregate by copper slag separately. From the literature review we can to know maximum percentage of replacement of ingredients. In this study, different mix proportions were carried out by replacing different percentage of ceramic powder and copper slag. From the experimental results, it was observed that compressive strength was increased about 36%, when compared to conventional concrete.
