Abstract: In conventional concrete, one of the ingredients Cement is partially replaced by Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag and its nature is studied in this project.. In the present paper, a comparison of Chloride ion penetration is been done on Concrete specimens with partial GGBS replacement. Two tests have been performed on the concrete specimens in both normal environment and artificial marine environment. One is the conventional RCPT and the other one is the chloride ion penetration test using silver nitrate. Comparison of both the tests under normal and marine environment is the main aim of this paper. After compiling the data both RCPT and the Chloride ion penetration test goes hand in hand and this proves the compatibility of the new chloride ion penetration test using silver nitrate. This work has the comparison of the concrete specimens in normal and marine environments as well with different levels of GGBS replacement.
