This study focused on studying the possibility of using concrete with incorporation of slag from blast furnace in the filling of short steel columns. The natural sand was totally or partially replaced by the sand slag in the composition of the concrete. The characterization of these concretes was made based on their physical properties (apparent and specific densities, porosity and fineness modulus), mechanical properties (compressive and tensile strengths) and the microstructure analysis by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The comparison with the conventional concrete was made. The experimental results show that the percentages of sand slag on the concrete composition have an important effect on the enhancement of the mechanical proprieties. The comparison of the different determined characteristics shows the benefits of the use of sand slag in the concrete composition compared with the conventional concrete.
