Abstract: Abstract: Concrete is the most used material world wide due to development of infrastructure. As sand is an important factor of concrete and it is not sufficiently available for construction activities and its cost increasing day by day due to a huge demand. In this experiment waste foundry sand is used as an alternative to sand in concrete up to 80% replacement by the addition of steel fibers as the strength material. As waste foundry sand is a by- product of metal casting industries and is a cause of concern due to its harmful effects on environment due to its improper disposal. Waste foundry sand consists of silica sand, coated with thin film of burnt carbon, residual binder (bentonite, sea coal, resins) and dust. Waste foundry sand can be used in concrete to improve its strength and other durability factors. An experimental investigation is carried out on a concrete of mix design M45, with the replacement of sand with the waste foundry sand in the range of 0%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, with the addition of Hooked steel fibers as a strength material in concrete. Material was produced and was tested for workability and strength. Tests were carried out on a cube of 150mm x 150mm x 150mm for 7 and 28 days. The result shows the optimum compressive strength at 60% waste foundry sand after that it starts decreasing; same is the case with the split tensile strength and flexural strength. .
