Owing to globalization, privatization and liberalization, the construction of important infrastructure projects are increasing in developing countries like India. Such development activities require large quantities of natural resources. This leads to faster depletion of natural resources on one side and manifold increase in cost of construction of structures on the other side, which is a major problem in construction sector today. In view of this people have started searching for suitable alternate materials which can be used either as an additive or as a partial replacement to conventional ingredients of concrete. Use of tile dust as partial replacement for cement in concrete is one such economical method. In the laboratory tests were conducted by partially replacing cement in concrete by tile dust as 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% & 50%. The development of compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength of concrete at the age of 7, 28, 56 days are investigated. These strengths are compared with conventional concrete of the same mix proportions.
