The wastes from the industries can be reused, recycled and reduced by the effective consumption. Moreover, these materials are effectively used as construction materials; the production of sustainable environment is possible. The secondary materials are throwing away from every metal making industries and the wastes are discharged to land, water and air bodies. The waste disposal to land makes the soil unhealthy. The living and non-living things in water bodies are also spoiled. The effective exploitation of industrial wastes is done by using the waste materials in making of concrete. Budding graduates have to overcome very far these issues with alternate construction materials. As a trigger to them here, it is extended from the earlier study to investigate the properties of concrete subjected to acid attack, the behaviour on concrete in reinforced structural members and also the microstructure study usin X-Ray Diffractometer and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy.
