As for the 9 inches block, at the age of 7 days, the compressive strength is 2.59 N/mm2 while at 28 days age, the strength is 3.94 N/mm2. Both have satisfied the minimum compressive strength of 1.8N/mm2 at age 7 days, and 2.5N/mm2 at …


In the use of concrete blocks for the walls of buildings, the stress to which they are subjected is almost entirely one of compression. In compressive strength well-made concrete does not differ greatly from ordinary building stone. It is difficult to find reliable records of tests of sand and gravel concrete, 1 to 4 and 1 to 5, such as is used in making blocks; the following figures show ...


This study was conducted at Engineering Laboratory Building of ESSU-Salcedo Campus, Salcedo, Eastern Samar.

A local block maker produces a mechanically pressed brick that consists solely of sand, cement and water. The bricks are unconventional when compared to those made in the United States. The purpose of this study is to understand the block material characteristics, quantify the block compressive strength, and develop an analytical model when a ...


The compressive strength result reported is an average over five specimens. (2) f c = 1 n ∑ 1 n F (l × w) where f c =compressive strength, N/mm 2; F = failure load in N; l × w = area of base-face, mm 2; l = length and w = width of the block. Mean strength and standard deviation for the 45 concrete block specimens were analyzed as well. (2)

Currently, seven ASTM standards apply to units intended primarily for construction of concrete masonry walls, beams, columns or specialty applications (see Table 1). The letter and first number of an ASTM designation is the fixed designation for …


This would be called sand-cement mixtures. 1.4 BLOCK The word block is a prismatic shape made from any kind of materials such as wood, metal, glass, etc which could be used for any purpose. In this case this block is moulded or made, from the concrete or sandcrete mixture, to form any desired shape of the block, hence the name concrete or ...

It is the most important factor for gaining the strength of concrete. The lower w/c ratio leads to a higher strength of concrete. Generally, the water/cement ratio of 0.45 to 0.60 is used. Too much water leads to segregation and voids in concrete. The water/Cement ratio is inversely proportional to the strength of concrete.


Compressive strength of concrete Blocks or concrete masonry units are required to know the suitability of these in construction works for various purposes. …


fresh concrete and then vibrated using the vibrating table. After 24 hours, the concrete specimens were demoulded and cured in water curing tank. All the specimens were cured for hydration period of 7, 14 and 28, days respectively. Flexural strength and compressive strength of the various grades of the concrete were determined.


The standard consistency of a cement paste is defined as that consistency which will permit the Vicat plunger to penetrate to a point 5 to 7 mm from the bottom of the Vicat mould 2.
