The protection of the environment is a basic factor, which is directly connected with the survival of the human race. Parameters like environmental consciousness, protection of natural resources, sustainable development play an important role in modern requirements for construction. Keeping this in mind, in this study the fresh and hardened properties of self compacting concrete (SCC) using red mud as partial replacement for cementitious material along with used foundry sand as partial replacement for fine aggregate were evaluated. Cementitious material in the mixture was replaced with red mud at 1%, 2%, 3% and 4%. For each red mud replacement level, 10% of fine aggregate (regular sand) was replaced with used foundry sand (UFS).
