The present study deals with the use and the valorization of the sand of dune of the Western erg of the western south of Algeria in the development of the formulation of the Concretes with ultra high performance UHPC. Mainly, if we think that meadows of 6% of the surface of the Algerian Sahara are covered by its sands.
