STUDY ON EXPERIMENTAL BEHAVIOUR OF CONCRETE USING SEA SAND AS AN AGGREGATE IN REINFORCED CONCRETE ELEMENTSA. Gopalan and S. Veeradhithyan
India is a developing economy and the development of India is one the fastest in the world. The growth of the nation inhibits the growth in infrastructure development. This development creates a huge demand for the raw materials of construction. The river sand is generally used as the fine aggregate in concrete, the over exploitation of which results in several serious hazardous problems to the environmental cycle. This project aims to replace the usage of river sand with the sea sand after reducing the chloride content with the feasibility of using the sea sand with reinforced concrete. On satisfactory results of the total salinity content the sand is used in the reinforced concrete.
