A clear insight into the affinity of biochar towards water is critical for its intended application. The state of the biochar would govern its use for a particular application. For example, hydrophilic biochar is preferred when sorption or organic contaminants are concerned. It is, at present, not clearly established the factors that govern the hydrophilicity and/or hydrophobicity of a biochar. Comprehension of the factors that affect the affinity of biochar towards water would aid to create ...

RICE HUSK ASH AS A PARTIAL SUBSTITUE TO CEMENT IN CONCRETE MIX

Nowadays, consumption of rice is increasing that leads to the greater demand in the production of it. After harvesting and shelling, husk remains and comes in great volume. Thus this rice husk is one of the big problems to be considered. Some studies suggested a solution to put rice husk ash as partial substitute to cement in concrete mixing in order to minimize the large quantity of rice husks build up as time goes by. Reinforc...

Behaviour of GFRP strengthened masonry wall panels under base shock vibrations

Masonry structures are prone to extensive damage followed byfailure and collapse when subjected to loads resulting from wind, earthquakeand other natural or man-made events. Recent earthquakes and terrorist actshave clearly demonstrated the need for the development of effective andaffordable strategies for the strengthening of masonry. As a response to thesechallenges, fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are found to offertechnically and economically viable solutions. In the context of ...

MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE

ABSTRACTThe main aim of the research is to study the mechanical properties of concrete and heir effects in concrete stability and failure. He fractures mechanical properties in particular uniaxial tensile strength Ft, young’s modules Eo and fractures energy Gf as sell as the shape of the stress strain and the stress- deformation relation  were investigated for high strength and normal strength concrete. In order to analyzed failure mechanism of the entire fracture cement pasture and ce...

THE COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE MADE FROM VARIOUS AGGREGATE

ABSTRACTThe work has gone a long way in determining strength of concrete made of various aggregates such as granites stone, black gravel, washed gravel and surface gravel.Some factors such as porosity of the  aggregate temperature coursing lose of water plate form for mixing of concrete mix affect the workability and eventually the strength of concrete.This project work consist of using hydraulic machine to carryout the compressive test of the strength of concrete made of the earlier men...

Public Transportation: The Role Of Government And Private Enterprise

ABSTRACTTransportation is a requirement for every nation, regardless of its industrial capacity, population size or technological development. The Nigerian transport systems, right from inception, were poorly designed and are unable to scale up to meet greater demand, a design flaw which causes traffic congestion on roads, overstressed railways, faltering airfields, and mass-transport blind spots. Overall there appear to be market impediments which operate to limit the extent to which Nigeria...
