ABSTRACT

In a study of Evaluation of the Suitability Latric Blocks for Construction of Animal Houses, an Industrial Solid Waste Alumina and Sodium Sulphate (Na2So4 l2 O3) was used as a stabilizer to achieve the maximum compressive strength at the least cost.

Different categories of blocks were made with latric and stabilizer/water ratios of 0.6, 0.8, 10, and 1.2 for 7, 14, 21, and 28 days caring period. Sandcrete blocks were also made with the same ratio of cement/water as a control to compare them. Preliminary soil tests were conducted on the soil to confirm its suitability of the soil. Destructive and non-destructive tests were conducted on both cubes. Other tests were conducted on both cubes. Other tests conducted are erodibility index text, the water absorption ratio test, the compressive strengths/surface hardness test. All the values that was obtained help to confirm the suitability of the stabilized lateric block for Animal houses construction.
