This paper presents the use of washed bottom ash as fine aggregates in special concrete. The WBA is a waste material that is taken from electrical power plant and the source material is called as BOTTOM ASH. To substitute the amount of carbon usage in concrete the bottom ash was utilized and fully submerged in water for 3 days to produce WBA with low carbon composition. The aim of study is to investigate the feasibility and potential use of washed bottom ash in concreting and concrete applications. The results of physical and chemical properties of WBA were discussed. the mechanical properties of special concrete with 30% WBA replacement by weight of natural sand is found to be an optimum usage in concrete in order to get a favorable strength and good strength development pattern over the increment age.
