Abstract—The possibility of using saw dust as a construction material for concrete was experimentally investigated by replacing fine aggregate as a saw dust. Saw dust is available as natural material and also useful for industrial purpose in order to minimize the fine aggregate and also the cost in the construction field. A comparative study was analyzed on the effect of concrete properties when sand was partially replaced by saw dust. The saw dust sieved using a 4.76mm sieve and 53 grade of cement. Using design mix M30 grade of conventional concrete and has to ratio of 1:1:2 (cement: sand: aggregate) has to be taken and percentage of replacement of fine aggregate with saw dust of 10%,20%and 30% respectively.  Experimental investigation were carried out on concrete cubes, flexural beams and cylindrical moulds. The mix was designed for target cube strength of 30N/mm² at 28 days
