Abstract. The research aims to find a suitable replacement for the current ultrafine material used in concrete and mortar formulation. The study will focus on the physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of the new ultrafine material in the cement matrix. The goal is to improve the performance of mortars through the use of local ultrafine. The study will include physico-chemical characterization of the ultrafine material, which may include clay or dune sand. The research will provide insights into the impact of using local ultrafine on cement-based mortars. The findings will inform the development of better formulations for concrete and mortar. The research will contribute to the use of locally sourced materials in the construction industry.
