Abstract: In the present study, fly ash was used as a raw material for replacing clay for making Fly ash reinforced bricks. The effect of fly ash with high replacement, and different properties of bricks combination were studied. It was found that the compressive strength of Plain Fly Ash and Treated Fly Ash Bricks (FAB, FALB) increases linearly and maximum with 5% coarse sand and 15% sand combination at 10% cement. This increase of compressive strength continues with the addition of 0.25% Plastic fibre in FAB and FALB. However, in the combination of Fly ash Lime stone dust glass powder Brick (FALSDGPB) with and without Plastic fibre the strength achieved to be maximum at 25% stone dust and 25% sand replacement. At the most, the combination of Fibre reinforced Fly ash Lime stone Dust glass powder Brick (25FRFALSDGPB) found to be highest compressive strength with 25% stone dust and sand combination at 10% cement. The strength achieved was nearly close to Indian First class Brick.
