ABSTRACT

    This case study is âcomparing the strength of blocks made from: cement stabilized laterite blocks, cement stabilized red earth blocks and sand,  red earth and laterite blocks and mud blocks dried in the kiln.
    This project implement the following analysis
(1)    To  effect  reduction to the  rise in market price of sand (fine aggregate), cement blocks to substitute literate blocks.
(2)    To determine the strength of the cement stabilized blocks of literate soil in the soil laboratory with a view to have an alternative in the building industry.
(3)    To analyse the existing laterite soil and evaluate itâs suitability for use as a good building material by means of various tests.
