ABSTRACT: This project consists of a partial replacement of fine aggregate with stone dust and brick dust in cement concrete for rigid pavement. In this project I have added two types of admixtures named as brick dust and stone dust in cement concrete mix. Here brick dust and stone dust is added in cement concrete mix with a percentage variation of 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25%. By adding brick dust and stone dust there was a variation in test results of compressive strength, flexural strength and tensile strength. The strength increased when the admixtures content increased up to 20% replacement in cement concrete. Now a day’s fine aggregate(sand) is very expensive; so that by adding admixtures like brick dust and stone dust as partial replacement in fine aggregate would give better saving and environment free. Therefore it is enhanced admixture to use in a rigid pavement construction in civil engineering and also overall cost may also reduce to 14.64% cost of cement concrete
