COMPARING THE STRENGHT AS BLOCKS MADE FROM (1) CEMENT AND LATERITIC SOIL (2) CEMENT AND RED EARTH (3) LATERITE, SAND AND RED EARTH, Is A Well-Researched Topic, It Is To Be Used As A Guide Or Framework For Your Research. (download in EPUB or PDF format).
This case study is “comparing 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 implements the following analysis
(1) To effect reduction to the rise in the 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 having an alternative in the
(3) To analyze the existing laterite soil and evaluate its suitability for use
as a good building material by means of various tests.
