Abstract: Concrete is a Composite material which is composed of Cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate binded together with a definite proportion of water. Concrete is widely used in every single construction work around the world. Due to large scale construction activities using conventional coarse aggregate such as granite as a constructional material extreme reduction in the natural stone deposit has been encountered and is affecting the environment, hence causing ecology imbalance. In current situation of construction, price factor and the wide range of extraction and processing of materials is matter of great concern for the people as well as environment. Therefore, introduction of alternate waste material in place of natural aggregate in concrete production not only protects environment but also make concrete a suitable, economical and environment friendly construction material. Different material like Coconut Shell and Fiber can also be used alternatively. In this project Coconut Shell and fiber are used as partial replacement for coarse aggregate as well as fine aggregate, respectively. To study characteristic properties of concrete 10% and 20% for coarse aggregate and 1%, and 2% for fine aggregate are replaced by its weight with coconut shell and fiber.
