Concrete is used as a very strong and versatile mouldable construction material. It consists of cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water. Usually, the use of river sand (fine aggregate) in our country is very huge in the construction industry. Therefore the use of river sand can be replaced with other materials to protect the environment of the river as well as prevent erosion and flooding. Abundant sea sand is one of the alternatives for the reduction of usage of river sand. River sand will be replaced with abundant sea sand in accordance with a specified percentage. Two types of cements are used for testing one is ordinary Portland cement; second one is Portland slag cement with different percentage of sand replacements. The present study was carried out by replacing the river sand with sea sand. The soil was tested as per codal provisions to obtain fineness modulus, specific gravity, bulk density and pH. River sand is replaced with sea sand with percentages 0, 10, 20, 30, and 40% for obtaining the compressive, split tensile and flexural strengths of M30 grade of concrete at the age of 7 and 28 days of standard curing.
