Abstract: Abstract: Used or Waste Foundry Sand can be utilized as an alternative for fine aggregate in conventional concrete. WFS or UFS can be used in large volume by partially replacing sand in construction industries. Here the strength properties of M25 and M60 grade concrete replaced by WFS by 0,10,20,30,40 and 50 percent w/w of fine aggregate is evaluated by measuring compression, split tensile and flexural strength at 7 days and 14 days.
Keywords: Waste foundry sand-WFS, used foundry sand -UFS M25 & M60 grade concrete.
