Abstract: This review paper gives an idea about the various studies on concrete by replacing the natural river sand into varying percentages of manufactured sand. Nowadays due to the environmental considerations and scarcity of natural river sand, we have to find out the suitable alternate material similar to those properties. Various research works have been going on for finding the suitable material, from that one such material is Manufactured Sand. Due to the high angularity of manufactured sand particles, higher water-cement ratio is required for maintaining the workability as compared to the natural river sand concrete. Concrete properties discussed in this paper are mechanical properties, workability and durability. Finally, conclusion has been made by quoting suitable percentage replacement of manufactured sand is feasible in concrete making process.
Keywords: Manufactured Sand, Mechanical Properties, River sand.
