Blended concrete with Supplementary Cementing Materials (SCM) is considered as green concrete in terms of the energy savings by the reduction of cement manufacturing. This paper aims to consolidate the studies conducted on the performance of blended concrete in Marine environment and compare with an experimental analysis. The studies conducted by the researchers all over the world have already derived the applicability of blended concrete in most aggressive environment like marine applications. The main impact of supplementary cementing material is the reduced chloride intrusion thereby reduction in reinforced corrosion. All the reviewed studies are showing positive results in the behavior under marine application. In this study, an attempt has been made to identify different experimental methods used to analyse the performance of multi-blended concrete exposed to marine environment and to review different methodologies adopted for the accelerated corrosion studies. An experimental study was also conducted to analyse the performance of multi blended cement concrete in marine environment. The ternary blended concrete exhibits very good corrosion resistance properties with a nominal reduction in compressive and split tensile strength. © 2017 IAEME Publication.
