    This work examined the structural properties of concrete obtained bypartially replacing cement with sawdust ash. The sawdust ash which is apozzolan was obtained by burning sawdust which is a waste product fromprocessing of timber in an open air. The burnt ash was passed through a150 µm metric sieve to obtain the ash used. Physical and...

    This research focuses on investigating the effect of quartz particle sizeand cement replacement on their physicomechnical properties. Portlandlimestone cement (PLC) was employed and replaced with quartz powder(QP) at various particle sizes (1.19 mm, 425 µm, 300 µm, 212 µm, <212µm) and cement replacement between 2.5 wt.% ~ 15 wt.% at interval of2.5 wt.% to study...

    Liquid polymers (LP) have become an important structural material used in the construction industry in the last decade. This paper investigates the viability of using commercially available LPs as a coating material to improve the flexural strength of fiber-modified concrete beams. The scope included preparing rectangular prism concrete beams with a concrete mixture including fly...
