This work present the results of experimental investigations carried out to evaluate effects of replacing aggregate (coarse and Fine) and Cement with that of Stainless Steel Slag on various proportions in Concrete (25% 50% 75% 100%). The basic objective of this study was to identify alternative source of aggregates and cement and to produce new type of concrete made of stainless steel slag as a green concrete. And to control the manufacturing and usage of conventional building materials these creates pollution to the environment. Alternate source of material is necessary because of very fast pace of construction activities and because of that increase of demand and cost of conventional building materials in India and all over the world and to solve the disposal problem of waste by products in effective manner. By using these waste materials in concrete we can control cost of materials used in construction. Stainless steel slag is the waste industrial by product from stainless steel production. It provides great opportunity to utilize it as an alternative to normally available aggregates (coarse and Fine) and cement. In this study, concrete of M30 grade were considered for a W/C ratio of 0.45 for the replacements of various percentage of coarse aggregate fine aggregate and cement by stainless steel slag. The investigation revealed improvement in compressive strength. Based on the overall observations, it could be recommended that stainless steel slag could be utilized as coarse aggregate fine aggregate cement in the following ratios respectively 100%, and 25% for all the concrete applications. This study investigates the performance of concrete mixtures containing stainless steel slag in terms of Compressive strength, at 7, 14 and 28 days. Results show that concrete incorporating stainless steel slag had higher compressive strength of concretes.
