A study on the Properties of Fibre Reinforced Laterized Concretes
This paper reports on a study of strength properties of fibre reinforced laterized concretes. The variables in this experimental work are: laterite content in the concrete mix, which was varied from 0% to 100% at 10% ...
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 ...
Industrial Training as an Integral of Engineering and Technology Education: Issues and Prospects
In this paper, the philosophy of engineering and technology education curricula in Nigerian Universities is presented. The paper notes that in formulating the curricula, industrial training is incorporated into the programme ...
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 ...
Determination Of Some Structural Properties Of African Oil Palm Timber (ELAIES GUINEENSIS)
Oil palm trees are abundant in Nigeria but they are hardly used for structural purposes, except in some rural areas where they are used as roof trusses, floor joists and occassionally columns.' In this paper tensile ...
Characterization and Mathematical Modeling of Chloride Diffusion in Lagos Coastal Waters.
Reports and news on failure due to corrosion degradation of structures ill aggressive environments are common occurrences in literature nowadays. This paper presents deterioration pattern of concrete structures in a coastal ...
Effects Of Fines Content On Some Engineering Properties Of Laterite Soils In Ile-Ife, Nigeria.
One of the factors which affect road failure (which is a common feature of the tropical environment) is the soil used as sub-base material. Soils (usually obtained from borrow pits) used as sub-base material contain a ...
