This study aims at utilization of industrial by product for value added application. Red mud is a main waste generated in aluminum production by the Bayer process. Concrete cubes and mortars cubes wer e made by replacing cement with red mud in concrete 5%, 10% &15% respectively. The compressive strength, consistency and setting time tests were conducted for the above replacements. The study indicates that red mud can be used in mortars and concretes for nonstructural application.
