In the present scenario, use of concrete as a structural material is limited to certain extend by deficiencies like brittleness, poor tensile strength, and poor resistance to impact strength, low ductility and low durability. The ceramic industry inevitable generates wastes, irrespective of the improvements introduced in the manufacturing process. In the ceramic industry, about 15%-30% production goes as waste. These wastes pose a problem in present-day society, requiring a suitable form of management in order to achieve sustainable development. In this study, experimental investigation on the compressive, tensile, flexural strength of concrete by adding steel fibers and effective replacement of cement with ceramic tile powder of 5%, 10%, 15% is calculated by casting the concrete into cubes, beams and cylinders. The grade of cement used is 53 and concrete is M35, size of coarse aggregates used is 20mm, fine aggregated should be passed through 4.75mm sieve. Concrete mixtures were produced, tested and compared in terms of compressive strength, tensile strength and split tensile strength to the control concrete. These tests were carried out to evaluate the mechanical properties for 7, 28 and 56 days.
