ABSTRACT

In the sense that the materials involved in this project were capital intensive more especially cement, so in carrying out the work one must have to be careful in the selection and collection of materials to be used in the casting of the concrete.

The materials used are coarse aggregate (granite) fine aggregate (sand). The coarse aggregates used in this work were collected from Ishiagu while the fine aggregate was collected in front of the carpentry’s workshop on the campus. The test conform to the standard method test, the ratio used was 1:2:4 and the method adopted was batching by weight, from the mix ratio the relative weight for each material to be used for concrete cube cast was 36, these cubes were tested for compressive strength of 7, 14 and 28 days. The results of tests involved in the work and that of compressive strength tests were calculated and tabulated as shown in the final tabulation of results.

    ABSTRACT The work has gone a long way in determining strength of concrete made of various aggregates such as granites stone, black gravel, washed gravel and surface gravel. Some factors such as porosity of the aggregate temperature causing loss of water plate form for mixing of concrete mix affect the workability and eventually the strength of... Continue Reading

    ABSTRACT  In recent years there has been an increase in the number of construction works and  concrete is the main construction material for most of the structures that are being  built. Nigeria is a developing Country with a large population and land area therefore  a consumer of concrete. This paper considers the option of recycling concrete... Continue Reading
    ABSTRACT The purpose of this project work is to assess the strength of No-fines concrete pavement. No-Fines concrete is use in low traffic volume, pathways, sidewalk and parking lots. No-fines concrete is produced by using ordinary Portland cement, coarse aggregates, and water. In this study, Two (2) batches of no-fines concrete each with two... Continue Reading
