Tons of waste glass is being produced annually all over the world and this waste is disposed as landfills but as a matter of fact the waste of glass doesn’t decompose in the environment. That has created a threat to the environment. So the dissertation work was carried to study the effect of waste glass powder in various concrete grades by partial replacement of cement. Use of milled waste glass in concrete as partial replacement of cement could be an important step toward development of eco-friendly and techno-economical systems. In this study OPC was replaced partially with waste glass powder at 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% by weight of the cement in three different grades of concrete M20, M25 and M30 and tested for Flexural Strength and Split Tensile Strength at 7th and 28th days and the results were compared with those of conventional concrete.The results show improvement in the Flexural strength and Split Tensile Strength.
