Abstract

The overall objective of this research is to propose a cost-effective and environmental friendly way of producing concrete using sea sand as fine aggregates and supersulfated cement as binder through material study and investigations on the long term behavior of marine concrete structures, such as embankment, seaport and wharf exposed to sea water. Our approach will be carried out at laboratory scale (characterization of raw materials, formulation and testing for durability of concrete) before practical implementation to industry in wider scale.
