A huge amount of shell husks is thrown away annually without any commercial return. This causes massive pollution and environmental problems. To mitigate the problem, shell husks have been used as recycled aggregates for the manufacture of concrete or cement-based composite materials. The mechanical properties of concrete specimens containing different percentages of shell husk aggregates namely 0, 10%, 20%, 30%, and 40% in the ratio of mass are demonstrated. The purpose of this study is to investigate the overall response of the mechanical properties of concrete as well as cementitious composites with different percentages of shell husk as a replacement for coarse aggregates. Various tests which measure the compressive strength, tensile strength and durability of concrete containing different percentages of shell husk were conducted.
