The development of automobile, vessel, rail road, and machine industry leads an increase of foundry production used as their components, which cause a by-product, waste foundry sand (WFS). The amount of the WFS produced in Korea is over 700,000 tons a year, but most WFS has been buried itself and only WFS is recycled as construction materials. Therefore, it is necessary for most WFS to research other ways which can be used in a higher value added product. The study on recycling it as a fine aggregate for concrete or green sand has been in progress in America and Japan since 1970s and 1980s respaectively. In this study, two types of WFS were used as a fine aggregate for concrete. Nine types of concrete aimed at the specified strength of 30 MPa were mixed with washed seashore coarse sand in which salt was removed, and WFS and then appropriate mixture proportion of concrete was determined. Moreover, basic properties such as air contents, setting time, bleeding, workability and slump loss of the fresh concrete with WFS were tested and compared with those of the concrete mixed without WFS. In addition, both compressive strength of hardened concrete at each ages and tensile strength of it at the age of 28 days were measured and discussed.
