Abstract Industrial waste slag is a major issue concerning the environmentalists today. The steel making industry produces a large amount of byproduct which is termed as Slag. Slag is produced during the steel-making operations that utilize Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF) and operate by smelting iron ore in the Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF). Steel slag finds numerous uses in the construction industry e.g in the applications involving hot mixture asphalt, in Stone Matrix Asphalt (SMA), berms and embankments constructions, main ingredient in manufacturing of Portland cement, as fine and coarse aggregates, to name a few. But steel slag has a negative impact on the environment when disposed of. In that case a wide variety of use of steel slag becomes relevant. Steel Slag is a perfect candidate to replace the coarse and fine aggregates in the traditional concrete used in the construction industry. Most of the volume of concrete is aggregate. Steel Slag can be used as replacement to these aggregates in a more prominent way. In this research study, we will be making steel slag as substitution for raw fine aggregate. Fine aggregate would be replaced by these wastes in different proportions (20%, 40%, & 60 %) by weight of fine aggregate. The aim of this study is to investigate the compressive strength, split tensile strength and Material properties of concrete with partial replacement for fine aggregate. We will be performing pull off test on the applications of this modified concrete and checking the results for strength and durability.
