The Present paper investigates the influence of water absorption of ceramic waste aggregate on strength properties of ceramic aggregate concrete. Compressive strength and split tensile strength of concrete made with ceramic waste aggregate is studied with replacement of natural coarse aggregate by ceramic waste aggregate at 0%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% and 100%. Due to the influence of water absorption and external porcelain nature, strength of ceramic concrete is declining gradually but strength of ceramic concrete is more than the targeted mean strength even after replacing 100% of natural coarse aggregate.
