The use of offshore sand is an alternative to replace normal weight aggregate where they are over exploited nowadays. The development of this study were experimentally to determine the capabilities of the researched materials (offshore sand) used in structural reinforced concrete. Flexural strength test were carried out with increasing load using third point load test method until the designed reinforced beam fails. The load and deflection were recorded in timely manner. Experimental ultimate moment capacity and deflection were compared with theoretical calculations and the cracks occurred are visualized to determine mode of failures. Even at early stage sample beam shows some potentials until first cracks occurred due to shear failure, the study found that sample beam deflection was higher than predicted and the ultimate moment capacity only achieves 40% compared to control sample.
