Abstract: Continuous raw material demand was increased in concrete productions which requires good quality and cost efficient alternative materials like Recycled Coarse Aggregate, M Sand and Glass as aggregate. This paper reports the behaviour of concrete using Glass aggregate as Fine Aggregate and Recycled aggregate as Coarse Aggregate replacement in concrete up to 15% and 30% respectively. In this project work, the concrete grade M25 was selected and IS method was used for mix design. The properties of Cement, M-Sand, Natural Coarse Aggregate, Glass asAggregate and Recycled Aggregate were investigated. The Beam Specimens were casted with and without C&D waste (Coarse Aggregate Replaced with Recycled Aggregate at 30% and Fine Aggregates replaced with Glass Aggregate at 15%). Vibration Analysis were made by using FFT analyser to determine acceleration characteristics. The work is focused on possible conservation of natural resources by substituting with waste material by suggesting a possible reuse option for Construction waste.
