compressive strength of sandcrete blocks

(PDF) compressive strength of sandcrete blocks

Sandcrete blocks are usually moulded from constituents of sand, water and Portland cement in specified or prescribed mix ratio or proportion. The compressive strength of sandcrete blocks is affected by the mix proportion, quality of material used in making them, size, shape, and the mode of manufacture (i.e. hand or machine mould).

Compressive Strength of Manual and Machine

This research investigated and compared the strength of manual with machine compacted sandcrete hollow blocks using Dangote and Elephant (Ordinary Portland) cement brands in Nigeria. Thirty two (32) samples were moulded from the two brands of cement i.e. sixteen (16) from each cement brand for both manual and machine compaction methods and were cured for 7, 14, 21, and 28days respectively.

2019-10-2  The blocks are joined together with mortar. Strength and usage. The final compressive strength of sandcrete can be as high as 4.6 N/mm 2, which is much less than concrete's 40 N/mm 2. Sandcrete is unsuitable for load-bearing columns, and is mainly used for walls, or for foundations if no suitable alternative is availe.

2019-7-24  Addition of coarse aggregates has been tried, since this is a cheap way to increase compressive strength, but since the cement content of sandcrete is small, so is the amount of water that is added to the sand/cement mix to cure it. Adding more solid materials makes the mix much less fluid, making it difficult to cast into blocks.

The Load Carrying Capacity of Hollow Sandcrete Blocks

2012-3-6  Compression tests on hollow sandcrete blocks are conventionally confined to the as-cast face neglecting the other two orthogonal faces. Also uniaxial compressive strength of hollow sandcrete blocks is defined on the basis of the apparent area of the as-cast face. The definition has made no distinction between hollow and solid sandcrete blocks.
