Abstract:Concrete in which coral and its related soft and porous limestones are used as aggregate presents more than the usual number of problems in controlling uniformity and quality. Using sea water for mixing has always been a reluctant last resort.

Notes on the action of sea water are presented with an account of field experience with it.
