There is a demand for sustainable infrastructure development due to the rapid growth of urbanization considering the waste management concept. To achieve the unmet need in this area, different waste and by-products from different industries are in use in the field of civil engineering. There is a need for concrete to give good workability, long-term high performance, durability, and sustainability for special structures. There is a requirement of better performance of concrete not only in compressive behavior but also in different behavior like shear performance. This implemented experimental work has been introduced to find out the analytical and experimental behavior of concrete with 50% cement replacement by steel industry waste for compressive and shear strength under different exposures. The experimental results show that waste exhibits better failure pattern compared to concrete without waste powder, higher ultimate strength in addition to much improved strength in different exposure conditions such as acidic and alkaline, for better infrastructure development.
