Abstract – This paper represents the experimental study of utilizing sintered fly ash aggregates as replacement of coarse aggregates in concrete. The main intention in doing so is to make the concrete lightweight. Sintered fly as aggregates are made from fly ash which is a waste material obtained from thermal power plants. Thus, in this way the utilization of waste can be made to develop lightweight concrete. The coarse aggregates in concrete have been fully replaced by sintered fly ash aggregates. The physical properties on sintered fly ash aggregates have been investigated. Mix design has been done for lightweight concrete and normal concrete as per relevant standard code for grade M-25. Cube and cylinder specimens have been casted for lightweight as well as normal concrete and tested for compressive strength at the age of 7-days and 28-days. Split tensile test have also been performed on cylinder specimens. The unit weight of both the type of concrete has been compared by considering the weight of the cube specimens
