The development of concrete technology and demand on high strength construction material leads to the development of Ultra High Strength Concrete. Nowadays getting natural sand has become expensive and lead to many environmental impact. To overcome these impact M-sand can be used which is more economical. This paper presents the development of UHSC using different fine aggregate such as Natural sand and Manufactured sand (M-sand). It is proposed to determine and compare the mechanical properties of UHSC containing natural sand and M-sand. The mechanical properties such as compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength of UHSC were investigated and evaluated by studying the effect of using M -sand and natural sand. The UHSC specimens were prepared with natural sand and M-sand as a fine aggregate.
