The present study is to investigate the physical and mechanical properties of the prepared sand mortars, mainly based on the local Oued Souf sand region south of Algeria, this in accordance with standard sand grading. The principal aim of the research is to replace the restricted fine part between (0.08and 0.16 mm) which is of the order 15% and to substitute it with additions active slag (S) and inert glass powder(GP) with dosages of 5, 10 and 15 % and maintain the rest of the granular fractions of the sand studied fixed. Thus, to see and analyze the influence of these additions on the physical properties and in regards the mechanical performances of confected prepared sand mortars. The results showed the advantageous effect of replacing the said prepared sand with two additions (slag and glass powder) on physical, mechanical properties mortars based on this local sand by improving the performance of these cement products, especially at an optimal percentage of 10%.
