Sand is one of the basic components of concrete and mortar, and for structural use it is usually essential that its grading should comply with international specifications. In some areas where large structures are being built, only fine sand is available and the transport of graded sand from distant sources would be too costly. This study describes the use of fine sand in structural concrete and its effect on the physical properties of the concrete. Mix design proportions are determined in terms of costs and of the problems encountered. (TRRL)
