The lightweight aggregate is an aggregate that weighs less than the usual rock aggregate and the quarry dust is a rock particle used in the concrete for the experimentation. The significant intention of the proposed technique is to frame a mathematical modeling with the aid of the optimization techniques. The mathematical modeling is done by minimizing the cost and time consumed in the case of
compressive strength of concrete specimen. It has also been reported that the reduction in the compressive strength of quarry dust concrete was compensated by the inclusion of fly as into the concrete mix. Reddy and Reddy, 2007 reported an increasing compressive strength by use of rock flour as fine aggregate instead of river sand.

The present work investigates the effect of using quarry dust as partial replacement for sand on the compressive strength and splitting tensile strength for M25 grade concrete. It identifies the trend in variation of these strengths with increasing replacement. The optimum replacement for which strength is maximized is found for this test batch.
The compressive strength is quantified for varying percentage and grades of concrete by replacement of sand with quarry dust. The concept of replacement of natural fine aggregate by quarry dust which is highlighted in the study could boost the consumption of quarry dust generated from quarries.
