Abstract: The major issue in the construction industry is to address the development of the suitable building material in a non depleting way to the environmental society. To effectively utilize the industry by-products in the construction sector will bring the cost effective solution and non polluting manner. Hence in this experimental investigation, M30 grade concrete is used in partial replacement of flyash by 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% for evaluating strength parameters. Once the optimum flyash percentage is arrived, then the steel scraps are incorporated in the percentage of 0%, 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% and 2% to enhance the strength properties further. As a result, it is profound that the optimum percentage of flyash replaced concrete is 20 % and addition of 1.5 % steel scraps is appropriate in enhancing the strength parameters. Modeling is adopted in arriving relationship for compressive strength with tensile and flexural strength for flyash replacements and addition of steel scraps. All the model equations are well correlated with the experimental results.
