Abstract: The Hike in cost of materials for building construction is creating a lot of concern due to more utilization of building materials like as fine aggregate, coarse aggregate for the construction of civil engineering structures, creating need for research into materials as alternatives in building and rural infrastructure & framework. Research attempts are directed towards improving the use of locally and readily accessible material such as lateritic soils for the construction. The presented experimental program deals with the study on possibility of proper application or utilization of laterite soil as a partial replacement fine aggregate into concrete. Concrete is the most commonly used composite material today. The constituents of concrete being Cement, Coarse / fine aggregate, and water. A rapid expansion in construction activities leads to an acute scarcity of conventional construction/building materials. Habitually, sand is being used as fine aggregate in the concrete. The function of the fine aggregate in concrete is to aid in producing workability ad uniformity in the concrete mixture. The river deposits are the most common source of fine aggregate. So, there are substantial demands within the construction industries for river sand as fine aggregate used in the preparation of concrete. This has created a very difficult situation, also there is great fear from environmentalist that the ecology will be distorted. Hence, there is a need to find the materials which are inexpensive and available partially or totally replaced river sand in the production of concrete. Hence, we are forced to think about the alternative materials. This research paper aims to contemplates the study conducted to establish scientific information regarding the Compressive strength, Tensile strength of concrete by partial replacement of fine aggregate with laterite soil in concrete mix of M15 grade with a water cement ratio of 0.45. The sand shall be replaced gradually in the mentioned grade of concrete by 0%, 7.5%, 15%, 22.5% and 30% with laterite soil and the specimen shall be tested for Workability, Compressive strength & Tensile strength for a curing interval of 7 days, 14 days and 28 days. As percentage of laterite soil increases, the compressive strength & tensile strength of concrete made with laterite also increases. The result revealed the concrete containing 22.5% of laterite soil exhibited higher strength, indicating that it can be utilized for a maximum of 22.5% substitution compared to other percentages of replacement in concrete.
