Comparative Study on the Properties of Cement Stabilized Lateritic Bricks Sourced from Different Locations IJTSRD


There is need for tested and proven alternative source of alternative walling materials in third world countries such as Nigeria. This will foster massive provision of houses for the populace. The aim of this research is to compare the properties of cement stabilized lateritic bricks sourced from different locations. Soil samples were taken from three locations within the study area to laboratory for Abrasion, Impact, Compressive strength and Water absorption tests. Results showed that the stabilized lateritic bricks A, B and C have water absorption values varied from 17 to 23 , 32 to 36 and 38 to 42 respectively for 7 – 28 days at 1 cement content. For 2 cement content, water absorption values varied from 15 to 20 , 24 to 28 and 32 to 36 for lateritic bricks A, B and C respectively. While sandcrete block has water absorption values varied from 9 to 13 for 7 – 28 days respectively. It is also observed that stabilized lateritic bricks A, B and C have compressive strength values varied from 1.33 to 1.71N mm2, 0.32 to 0.42 N mm2 and 0.21 to 0.29N mm2 respectively for 7 – 28 days at 1 cement content. For 2 cement content, compressive strength values varied from 1.52 to 2.09 N mm2, 0. 40 to 0.63N mm2 and 0.29 to 0.35 N mm2 at 7 – 28 days for lateritic bricks A, B and C respectively. While sandcrete block has compressive strength values varied from 0.54 to 0.74 N mm2 for 7 to 28 days respectively. The higher the cement content, the lower the absorption rate and the higher the compressive strength. The compressive strength also increases with age. Lateritic brick is more cheaper than sandcrete block for construction of building because it require little cement content. Further study should be conducted for another source of stabilizer.
