Abstract: One of the sustainable construction elements is using waste material, recycled materials in the concrete production process. Coarse aggregate has been obtained from a carpenter sawdust waste in TIU workshop / Erbil. Wood particles were used in different proportions of the cement content. The fresh properties of slump, and water absorption, and the compressive, flexural strengths were measured and discussed.
