THE COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE MADE FROM VARIOUS AGGREGATE
NDUBUISI, ANTHONY ONYEJIUWA CE/N2004/034
Department of Civil Engineering
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 coursing lose of water plate form for mixing of concrete mix affect the workability and eventually the strength of concrete.
This project work consist of using hydraulic machine to carryout the compressive test of the strength of concrete made of the earlier mentioned aggregated.
From the result obtain, it is quite clear that their strength are not the same,
The result also reflect the strength of aggregate since their strength can be directly determined.
The finishing from these works show the strength of these aggregates and also reflect the standard of work that these aggregate can be used for concreting.
