Abstract: Regional conditions enforced engineers to generate a study on concrete which incorporate Over Burnt Brick Ballast Aggregate partially due to their abundance. 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20% (M05, M10, M15, M20) incorporation was used as partial replacement of natural coarse aggregate in concrete. Analysis of incorporated concrete was done in fresh state as well in hardened state to evaluate different properties of concrete i.e. slump , compaction factor test, unit weight, and compressive strength are evaluated. From all the results and experimental approach it is concluded that Concrete formed with over burnt brick ballast aggregate showed beneficial performance as compared with the concrete made up of natural aggregate obtained from local resources. The over burnt brick ballast aggregate showed 14.75% increase in Compressive strength for 20% replacement. It reduces the cost of concrete by reducing the aggregate cost and produces economical infrastructure system..
