Abstract: In this study, full and partial replacement of stone aggregate by ceramic insulator scrap and partial replacement of cement by fly ash has been done in order to enhance economy in construction. More once, the solution of disposal of wasting from ceramic insulator manufacturing company and thermal power plant is also achieved. Further various mechanical properties of ceramic insulator scrap such as crushing value, impact value, abrasion value, specific gravity, sieve analysis and water absorption has been studied and obtained to make the study fruitful. Concrete of grade M15 is used to study the compressive strength properties of stone and ceramic aggregates. Replacement of stone aggregates by ceramic aggregates has been done in stages starting from 0% to 100% each stage possessing the variation of 10% and in all the specimens 30% of cement is replaced by 35% of fly ash. Six number of cube samples are cast for each variation and the compressive strength of the same have been obtained at 7, 28 and 56 days of age. Totally 216 cubes are cast and tested for compression. It is found that the optimum percentage at which the stone aggregate can be replaced by ceramic aggregates is 50% and 30% of cement can be replaced by 35% fly ash.
