Findings showed that concrete containing marble dust 0 to 15%showed the highest amount of compressive strength, and split tensile strength of concrete. Further studies can be carried out as this study only concludes that there is an increase in strength upto 15% replacement of cement by the marble powder.

    The particle shape of aggregates is determined by the percentages of flaky and elongated particles contained in it. For base course and construction of bituminous and cement concrete types, the presence of flaky and elongated particles are considered undesirable as these cause inherent weakness with possibilities of breaking down under heavy loads.

Cement being the main constituent of concrete plays a vital role in concrete production. In Ethiopia, the cement consumption has grown well with a growth rate of about % per year.

Hence, an alternative material to partially replace cement was initiated to reflect the needs of local community in the study area.

Results showed that a water-cement ratio of resulted in a dry and brittle mix that led to compressive strength less than 15 MPa but a high permeability rate of approximately 20mm/s. Four different C concrete mixes with bagasse ash replacements of 0%, 5%, 15% and 25% of the Ordinary Portland cement were prepared with water to cement ratio of and cement content of kg.

compressive strength of concrete. The tests were conducted on the most used concrete constituents in Addis Ababa city in Mafcon Engineering and construction (PLC) laboratory. Tests for compressive strength of concretes are carried out by six cubes of size 15cm*15cm*15cm.

All test specimens are prepared in accordance to the ACI mix-design. cement and water content of a concrete mixture—while maintaining a constant water-cement ratio—can result in equal or reduced compressive strength, and can increase slump loss by a factor of two or more (Whiting and Dziedzic ).

The proportions of aggregate and cement for any concrete shall be such as to produce a mix which will work readily into corners and angles of the forms and around tendons and reinforcement with. experiment is based on the specifications used for RC water tanks employed in Ethiopia.

The first experiment involved testing of a total of 18 specimens at the ages of 3, 7, and 28 days for compressive strength. The compressive strength of concrete. The basis for strength and material specification of this experiment is based on the specifications used for RC water tanks employed in Ethiopia.

The first experiment involved testing of a total of 18 specimens at the ages of 3, 7, and 28 days for compressive strength. The compressive strength of concrete was determined by testing the cubes in a.

The compressive strength of the hardened concrete increased up to a 50% replacement of scoria as a fine aggregate compared to the control concrete in which the river the sand was used. Thus, scoria can be used up to this level of replacement to produce the target design strength of concrete of C grade.

The specified compressive strength Fc is measured by compression tests on 15cm by 30cm cylinder tested after 28 days of moist curing. This is the strength specified on the construction drawings and used in the calculations. Tensile Strength of Concrete.

The tensile strength of concrete falls between 8 and 15 percent of the compressive. The beams were poured by using concrete made up of Ordinary Portland Cement, Ravi Sand and Margalla Crush as fine coarse aggregate respectively having maximum size as 19 mm.

Mix proportions were (C: S: C.A) and water to cement ratio was for designed strength of psi with slump of in ( mm) to guarantee the workability. the compressive strength f c ′ for concrete, or of the yield stress f y for the steel reinforcing bars. Safety Provisions of the ACI Code Load factors are applied to the loads, and a member is selected that will have enough strength to resist the factored loads.

In addition, the theoretical strength of the member is reduced by the.

The construction industry consumes about 40% of the global energy; is the largest global consumer of raw materials; and is responsible for 25–40% of the world’s total CO 2 emissions and 28% of solid waste in the form of construction debris [].Over 10 billion tons of Portland cement concrete (PCC) is produced annually worldwide due to its versatility, durability and.

Concrete cubes of grades M, M, M, M and M were cast using potable and grey water and tested for compressive strength on 7th day and 28th day. The results of compressive strength of concrete with grey water are found almost same or little less than the concrete with potable water.Compressive Strength of Concrete -Cube Test [PDF], Procedure, Results.
