Abstract: In construction, Industry Rising Cost of Construction Material is the Great factor. The price of building material are rising day by day, therefore, there is the most priority of all human beings encourage or research on the sustainable material will help to use such waste material as a construction material with less cost and safety of the structure. The coarse aggregate is the main constituent of test results. The use of coconut shell can also help the prevention of the environment. The paper aims at analyzing the compressive strength of concrete (M20-1:1.5:3) produced using a coconut shell as a substitute for conventional coarse aggregate with 5%, 10%, 15 %, 20% partial replacement. Three sample cubes are prepared for M20 grade concrete mix for each case another aim of this paper is to spread awareness about use of coconut shell as construction material in civil engineering Concrete is most widely used building material in the world, as well as the largest user of natural resources with annual consumption of 12.6 billion tons. Basically, it consists of aggregates which are bonded together by cement and water. The major part of concrete beside the cement is the aggregate. Aggregate includes sand and crushed stone / Gravel. Use of these conventional materials in concrete is likely to deplete the resources unless there is a suitable substitute. Rubber which is generated in large quantities as waste does not have useful disposal till now. But rubber is found to possess properties that are required for viable replacement of fine aggregate in concrete. Hence we in this project have aimed to study the effectiveness of rubber as a substitute for fine aggregate and utilize the crumb rubber tires in concrete, to minimize global warming.
