Influence of Water/Cement Ratios and Mix Proportions on Workability and Characteristic Strength of Concrete Containing Laterite Fine Aggregate
(Pergamon Press PLC., 1994)
This paper examines the variation of work ability and characteristic strength of laterized concrete (concrete containing laterite fine aggregate instead of sand) with different water/cement ratios and mix proportions. Four ...
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 ...
