Abstract: Due to growing environmental awareness, as well as stricter regulation on managing industrial waste, the world is increasingly turning to researching properties of industrial waste and finding solution on using its valuable component parts so that it might be used as secondary raw material in various other industries. Although wood saw dust is still today considered waste and is categorized in industrial waste catalogues in most countries, but it is not that kind of waste neither by its physical and chemical properties nor according to data on its use as valuable martial for different purposes. Moreover in early time till the arrival of refrigeration, it was frequently used in houses to obtain ice all through summer. Considering the specificity of physical and chemical properties of wood saw dust and a series of possibilities for their use in other industrial branches and in the field of civil constructions, this report demonstrates the possibilities of using saw wood dust as partial replacement of fine aggregate in concrete. This report presents an investigation of different properties like fresh properties, hardened properties and durability properties of concrete using different percentage of wood chipping as partial replacement of fine aggregate at different water cement ratio after pretreatment with water and sodium silicate. Secondly it represents fresh properties, hardened properties and durability properties of concrete using constant percentage (5%) of wood chipping as partial replacement of fine aggregate and silica fume as partial replacement of cement at different percentage. The results shows that the concrete using wood saw dust as replacement of fine aggregate there is large reduction in weight of concrete.
