Objectives: This project is dealt with the usage of sea sand in the construction field with the removal of salt content from the sand. Methods/Statistical Analysis: An experimental setup with Sea Sand has been made suitable for construction purpose by reducing the salt content to equalize its properties similar to the River Sand. Findings: By removing the salt from sand by washing with ample water the purified sea sand exhibited better strength than the unpurified sea sand and river sand. Hence, it is proved that the corrosion is controllable. Applications/Improvement: The removal of salt content from water is mandatory and hence improves the workability and durability of any construction works.
