Abstract
Presently, concrete is most widely used construction material due to its good compressive strength and durability. It is estimated that the consumption of concrete in the world is around 12 billion tons every year. The strength and durability of concrete will be fully developed only if it is cured. Curing of concrete structure is essential if it is to perform the intended function over the design life of the structure. Concrete is needed to be provided with moisture for a minimum period of 28 days for good hydration and to attain desired strength. Any laxity in curing will badly affect the strength and durability of concrete. Anarea like sea side, or the area where saline water is available for the curing, is a scarcity of pure water where curing with normal water is difficult and in cases where large areas like pavements have to be cured. In this paper, to find out the effect of saline water in mixing and curing on strength of concrete, 3 concrete cubes are casted and cured with fresh water and 3 concrete cubes are casted and cured with saline water. These cubes are cured for 7, 14 and 28 days and are tested for compressive strength respectively.
