An Overview of Foamed Aerated Concrete - A Building And Civil Engineering Construction Material
(Duncan Science Company, 2008)
Over the -past 20 years foamed aerated concrete has become accepted in many parts of the world as an important material for use in the construction industry. The amount of foamed concrete being used, the number of ...
A Comparative Study of Normal Concrete With Concretes Containing Granite and Laterite Fine Aggregates
(Elsevier Science Limited, 2001)
Three types of fine aggregates are investigated for making concrete. namely sand for normal concrete, granite and laterite fines. The properties considered are compressive and tensile strengths. Three mix proportions of ...
An Investigation of Periwinkle Shells as Coarse Aggregate in Concrete
(Elsevier Science Limited, 1995-10)
An Investigation into using periwinkle shells (PWS) partially or wholly in concrete is reported. Three standard mixes of cement: sand: granite + PWS (1:Full-size image (<1 K):3, 1:2:4 and 1:3:6) and two design mixes of ...
Behaviour of Laterized Concrete Beams under Moment and Shear
The science and technique of substituting laterite for fine aggregate ill normal concrete work is rapidly increasing ill Nigeria. Studies Oil laterized concrete elements have been devoted primarily to observation under ...
Effects of Seperation of Grain Sizes of Fine Aggregate on Properties of Concrete Containing Granite Fines
In this study, seven grain size ranges of granite fines were used: 4.75 - 3.35mm, 3.35 - 2.36mm, 2.36 - 1.70mm, 1.70 - 1.18mm, 1.18 - 0.30mm, 0.30 - 0.063mm and 4.75 - 0.063mm (those containing all grain sizes). The ...
