In the current world, concrete has become a very important part of the construction industry and the materials which are used in making concrete have evolved due to better quality of cement and better grade of coarse aggregates. The sand is an important part of concrete. It is mainly procured from natural sources. Thus the grade of sand is not under our control. The concrete cubes of M-20, M-25 & M-30 grade were threw in this trial explore work and tried to analyze different properties of concrete like compressive quality, workability. In this study M-sand is considered as a replacement of natural sand by 50, 70 & 90% by weight of sand in concrete design mix with 1% Bamboo fiber streams as an admixture. This study is carried out at the age of 7 and 28 days. In this work, the general properties of fresh and hardened concrete were tried and the outcomes were dissected. As concrete is a central material for the construction industry. In any case, in the present period where development is expanding quickly and development rate is coming to their statures, it is contrarily affecting our condition as well. So it is vital to utilize some optional materials as a part of concrete to minimize the cost, and to enhance the properties of concrete for better stability of the structures.
