cseb-design.ppt - compressed stabilized earth blocks(cseb,soil selection soil composition- gravel, sand, silt and clay laterite soils are very good for block manufacturing preferable composition- sand + gravel 65% - 80% (particle size < 12mm); silt 10% to 20% ; clay 10% to 20% fines content – minimum is required for the green strength fines (clay and silt) < 35 % high fines: reduce the compressive strength higher shrinkage.compressive strength of concrete -cube test, procedure,concrete compressive strength for general construction varies from 15 mpa (2200 psi) to 30 mpa (4400 psi) and higher in commercial and industrial structures. compressive strength of concrete depends on many factors such as water-cement ratio, cement strength, quality of concrete material, quality control during the production of concrete, etc..an evaluation of lime and cement stabilization,the unconfined compressive strength was determined over the strength, of the treated soils. the importance of pulverization range of curing times. tests were conducted on both dry and for the strength of cement-treated soils and the effects of the wet specimens as described under curing. degree of compactive effort on both cement-treated and lime-.understanding the basics of green sand testing.,dry compression dry compression indicates the resistance of the mold to stresses during pouring and cooling of a casting and the ease of shakeout. procedure - dry compressive strength is the maximum load a dry specimen can sustain before fracturing. a standard 2 x 2-in. specimen is made and dried in a ventilated oven at 230f (110c) for 2 hr..

procedure for compression test of concrete. clean the cylinder mould and coat the inside lightly with form oil, then place on a clean, level and firm surface, ie the steel plate. collect a sample. fill 1/2 the volume of the mould with concrete then compact by rodding 25 times. cylinders may also be compacted by vibrating using a vibrating table.
estimate the adequate ingredients to prepare the concrete with a proper water-cement ratio. ensure that the cube mould should be free from dust and rust. now, pour the concrete into the mould by proper compaction with the help of a tamping rod. finish the top surface as smooth by the trowel.

compressive strength at 90 days is regarded as initial strength. after 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 wet-dry cycles, compressive strength was tested through the ultrasonic method. 4.1.5. experimental results and discussion. figure 9 shows the compressive strength of cube specimens after wet

strength more than round grained sand moulds. green compression strength is very important in t he preparation of moulds. one reason is because it determines the mouldability of a sand mixture. for a sand mixture to be mouldable it must have a green compression strength value of 1.5 psi (10.34kpa) and above  . low green
compressive strength. the compressive load required to cause failure of an unconfined cylindrical or cubical specimen of the stone, divided by the cross-sectional area of the specimen perpendicular to the axis of load- ing (fig. c2). the units are, therefore, force per unit area, which in the si system is mn/m 2.
1.2 strength properties when wood is loaded to higher stress levels beyond the elastic range, plastic deformation or failure occurs. five strength properties that are commonly measured for design purposes include bending, compression parallel and perpendicular to the grain, tension par allel to the grain, and shear parallel to the grain. in
so, compressive strength is the highest load per unit area borne by the stone without giving in. a higher compressive strength between1,800 psi (12.45 mpa) and 19,000 psi (131 mpa) means the stone can endure an upper crushing load. dry or wet conditions as per load determine the compressive strength of the stone. bending strength test
according to the national precast concrete association quality control manual for precast concrete plants, section 18.104.22.168, at least four compressive strength specimens must be cast for each 150 cubic yards of concrete of each mix or once every week, whichever occurs first.
the following characteristic properties of aggregates influence concrete compressive strength. • the size of aggregates- larger the maximum aggregate size (mas) lesser is the cement paste required and hence will need lesser cement and water paste for some compression strength and workability as compared to aggregates with smaller mas.
as seen in table 1 the tallest core profile is a-flute, which is used in board for heavy duty boxes. b and c-flute are used for the most common board grades. the e and f-flutes are small and consequently used in board for smaller boxes, e.g. perfume packages, where appearance and printability are important . table 1. flute profiles.
the bearing capacity of your soil will help you determine if you need a shallow foundation or deep foundation. soil strength directly under the footing, where loads are concentrated, is crucial to foundation performance. you can get a pretty good idea of the soil bearing capacity in the trench bottom using a hand penetrometer.
a board rated at 2.0e is twice as stiff as one rated at 1.0e. compression stress shortens or compresses the material. for the woodworker, the primary types of compression to consider are parallel to the grain and perpendicular to the grain. compression parallel to

although concrete compressive strength generally is related to the compressive strength of the coarse aggregate, american concrete institute (aci) 213r-03 reports that for typical building-slab compressive strengths – up to about 5,000 psi – “there is no reliable correlation between aggregate strength and concrete strength.”
compressive strengths of 3.5 to 7 mpa and 2 to 4 mpa for saturated compressive strength, seeing that water absorbed by the blocks disintegrates unstabilized clay particles. in his report he states that the tensile strength of saturated blocks, by means of the three point bending test, is inferior to 1/6 of saturated compressive strength.
high-early-strength concrete, also called fast-track concrete, achieves its specified strength at an earlier age than normal concrete. the time period in which a speci-fied strength should be achieved may range from a few 300 design and control of concrete mixtures eb001 table 17-1. materials used in high-performance concrete

have the necessary compressive strength to fully resist soil pressures over the life of the building. long-term perform-ance of styrofoam extruded polystyrene insulation below grade helps to save energy and reduce moisture problems in basements. table 1 illustrates the importance of compressive strength as it relates to an insulation’s
a good concrete should not show less than the minimum compressive strength at respective days. hence concrete is safe to use. important note: as per is: 516-1959 minimum three specimens should be tested at each selected age (that means three specimens at 7 days, three specimens @ 14 days & 28 days) if strength of any specimen varies by more than 15% of average strength…
compressive strength table d.5. compressive strength since the sorptivity is more sensitive to various curing methods, it could be a good method to be used to measure the effectiveness of the compounds. the statistical analysis showed the relationship between the moisture and conductivity.
estimating compressive strength. general rock failure criterion can be reduced to a few parameters dependent on lithology (m) and the uniaxial compressive strength (c 0).lithology is commonly derived during log analysis, so m may be estimated (table 1).what is needed still is an initial measure of rock strength provided by c 0. c 0 can be estimated from porosity or sonic velocities, but
compressive strength is measured in megapascal (mpa). one atmospheric pressure is 101 325 pascal; a megapascal is more-or-less one million pascal, or 10 times atmospheric pressure. in other words, one mpa is 10 times stronger than it needs to be to resist the force of gravity on earth, stand on its own and not be crushed.
compressive strength tests are ran by pushing both sides of a cylinder of the epoxy (or concrete etc.) on the top and bottom of the cylinder. typical numbers most non-flexible epoxies start at slightly under 10,000 psi (pounds per square inch) and work their way up from that.
