At present, the usage of concrete is increasing day by day. In future days cement may find its scarcity due to over usage. After water, cement is the second most consumed product in the world. This scarcity may affect the construction industry. The rapid production of cement may create several environmental issues also, for which solution is to be found out. In the production process of cement, CO2 emission takes place. One ton of CO2 gets emitted for one ton of OPC manufacture. And cement

Hence it is necessary to find a replacement to cement in concrete as a substitute to it.. Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS) is been continuously used as a replacement material for cement. But a very little knowledge about GGBS concrete behaviour in marine environment is available. Nowadays due to a revolutionary improvement in marine structure and due to which the present study holds importance. I.
