Abstract: Due to high material consumption, infrastructure construction is rapidly becoming a serious problem in this world, particularly in developing countries. Concrete is produced in greater amounts, as a result of this aggregate shortage The focus of this research was to see if ash can substitute for fine aggregates in concrete The sample was collected from the Ayka Addis mill pond ash. The experimental laboratory of this research work was used to conduct tests on gradation, specific gravity, unit weight, moisture content, silt content, and water absorption, as well as workability, density, and compressive strength. The workability of each mix was measured before the concrete was cast, and the slum was 25 to 50mm. Furthermore, for accurate testing of density and compressive strength, cubes (150mm x 150mm x 150mm) of 7% to 30% pond and 5% to 30% of ash density, which were of concrete, were prepared. Up to 10% of the total mix, the concrete was found to have compressive strength of 34.75 N/sq.m. For this reason, fine aggregate at 10% replacement is the best aggregate to use.
