In the research, the effects of sea water for mixing, curing on the gain in strength of different grades of concrete was investigated. A total of 192 concrete cubes were tested for their compressive strength. The study shows that sea water affects the rate of gain in strength of concrete when used for mixing or curing. The strength of concrete made by using sea water was observed to be decreased by about 15% as compared to the similar concrete specimens made and cured with fresh water at 90 days. The concrete with higher strength showed poorer resistance against strength deterioration as compared to the lower strength concrete which used sea water for curing. And the concrete made with sea water decreased the stability of concrete properties.
