This paper generalizes the results of study on concrete using ceramic materials as partial replacement for fine and coarse aggregate. The attempt has been made to compare, the 7 days and 28 days compressive strength, splitting tensile strength and flexural strength of ceramic concrete with the normal concrete of M25 grade with maintaining the water cement ratio 0.45. The objective of this study is to develop concrete with good strength, less porous, less capillarity, eco-friendly concrete. For this purpose, the experiment has been carried out on M25 grade of concrete, using ceramic materials as partial replacement in different percentage 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% to the weight of fine and coarse aggregate.
