Many researchers have been carried out in the area of sintered fly ash utilization in the past. A mix design was done for M25 Grade of concrete by IS method. Ordinary Portland cement of 43 Grade was selected and sintered fly ash aggregates were prepared by mixing sintered fly ash with cement and water. Which is a waste material of coal firing Thermal power plants (TPPs) and its accumulation near power plant. Sintered fly ash aggregate is a group of material that can vary significantly in composition. It is residue left from burning coal, which is collected on an electrostatic precipitator. These theses explain the various utilization of sintered fly ash and its ordinary Portland cement and properties in concrete causes severe pollution problems. Its utilization as a raw material for cube and prism making will be a very usefully solution in our economical and environmental aspects
