Abstract: 
In China, manufactured sand has been widely used as fine aggregate in concrete. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate the effect of manufactured sand on durability of concrete. This research studies the influence of stone dust content in manufactured sand on resisting chloride penetration in marine concrete by strength and other physical mechanical tests, XRD, TGA and pore structure analysis. Test results have shown that the chloride diffusion coefficient increased with increasing the stone dust content in manufactured sand when the stone dust content increasing from 3% to 13%. The stone dust in fine aggregate participated in the hydration of cement, which will promote the hydration degree of the cementitious material and increase the chloride binding capacity of hydration product. The influence of stone dust in fine aggregate on the chloride diffusion coefficient were the combined effects of concrete pore structure and hydration products. The porosity and pore size distribution were the main factors that influence the diffusion coefficient.
