The growth of concrete technology during the last decade has been mainly based on finding a suitable and eco-friendly substituent for cement. This project is synonymous to the same perception of finding an eco-friendly and feasible cementitious material. The reason trend is to incorporate industrial waste into concrete. Textile sludge is such a kind of industrial waste which is currently disposed by land filling that leads to ground water pollution and poor productivity of soil. In this study an attempt has been made to compare the mechanical strength of concrete of M30 grade by replacing cement by quartz powder and textile sludge respectively. Specimen were cast by replacing cement by quartz powder at 5,10 and 15 percentage by weight of cement and by textile sludge 5,10 and 15 percentage by weight of cement. An effort is also taken to investigate the combined effect of quartz powder and textile sludge on concrete by replacing quartz powder and textile sludge in equal proportion of 5, 10 and 15 percentage by weight of cement. Strength parameters such as compressive strength and split tensile strength were investigated. It was observed that the quartz powder of 10 % by weight of cement proved to be the optimum whereas on addition of textile sludge a decreasing trend was observed with 5% as the optimum.
