Light weight aggregate has great advantages when used in concrete such as low density and thermal insulation property, intensely heated clay falls under this category and is strong enough to be used for structural purposes. Overheated Mangalore tiles are used in this experiment as they are entirely made up of clay and are not used in construction due to its deteriorated aesthetics .This paper deals with experimental study on the compressive strength of M25 grade concrete with the partial replacement of coarse aggregate by using highly heated Mangalore tiles. The sample are casted with 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%,35%,40% replacement of coarse aggregate and tested for 7 and 28 days strength with proper curing. The results show that 35% replacement level of coarse aggregate attained workable concrete with satisfactory strength.
