COMPARING THE STRENGTH OF BLOCK FROM CEMENT STABILIZED, LATERITE BLOCK CEMENT STABILIZED, RESEARCH BLOCKS LATERITE SAND, AND RED EARTH BLOCKS, 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 market prices of sand (fine
aggregate) cement blocks to substitute laterite blocks.
2. To determine the strength of the cement stabilized blocks of
laterite soil in the soil laboratory with a view to have an alternative
in the building industry.
3. To analyze the existing laterite solid and evaluate it’s suitability
for use as a good building material by means of various tests.
