In the presented Research, a fraction of fine aggregate used in concrete is replaced by stone dust, a by-product of stone crushing and the sample cube is tested to determine the compressive strength of concrete. Tests to determine the physical properties of sample cube such as specific gravity, fineness modulus, and moisture content are also performed. Stone dust is best alternative for the fine aggregate because fine aggregate (natural sand) and stone dust has similar physical and mechanical properties. This paper shows some relevant studies regarding the effect of stone dust on mechanical property like compressive strength. Hence in this paper strength and properties of conventional concrete and stone dust concrete are compared so that it will be helpful to other researchers.
