    Hydroxyapatite (HA) has been studied for their excellent performances which are suitable for use in bone defects or regeneration of bone. Hydroxyapatite (HA) has poor mechanical properties which make it limited used in a load bearing area. In this case, sodium alginate (SA) was used to be mixed with hydroxyapatite (HA) by using precipitation method to increase the mechanical and physical properties. The mixing of hydroxyapatite/sodium alginate effectively increases the densification and hardness…

    Large-scale and industrial construction projects require a unique blend of materials, quite different from those used in home construction. One of these is pre-cast concrete components such as stairways, beams, floors and walls. These elements lend structural integrity, fire safety and insulation benefits. For companies that transport these heavy construction materials, great care must be taken to ensure they arrive at their destination in a timely, safe, and efficient manner. Weight Limits…

    placed on top of a fixed membrane. An epoxy system has a resin matrix and bonds indirectly to the slab. A membrane is adhered to the slab upon which the terrazzo is placed. A rustic system is cement based and bonds directly to the slab. It has a portland cement under-bed, and is topped with terrazzo that is not ground flat. A monolithic system is cement based and bonds to the slab. The terrazzo topping bonds with the concrete slab. A tile system is epoxy based and bonds to the slab. The slab is…

    Abstract: The study investigated the workability, and compressive strength properties of the concrete produced by replac-ing 5%, 10% and 15% by weight of ordinary Portland cement with Sawdust Ash (SDA). Slump test was carried out on the fresh concrete and compressive strength test on hardened concrete. The concrete cubes were tested at the ages of 3, 7, 14 & 28 days. The results showed that Sawdust Ash is good with use in cement. The slump decreased as the Sawdust Ash content increased…

    3. MIX DESIGN 3.1 Design of Geopolymer Concrete Mixtures: In the mix design of geopolymer concrete the role and the influence of aggregates are considered to be the same as in the case of Portland cement concrete. The mass of combined aggregates may be taken to be between 75% and 80% of the mass of geopolymer concrete. Coarse and fine aggregate together were taken as 77% of entire mixture by mass. Fine aggregate was taken 30% of total aggregate. Fly ash and alkaline liquids was taken 23% of…

    by mixing cement, sand, and aggregates with water. Fresh concrete can be moulded into almost any shape, it can also be given different strengths, giving it a significant advantage over other materials. It became very popular after the invention of Portland cement in the 19th century; however, its limited tension resistance initially prevented its wide use in building construction. To overcome poor tensile strength, steel bars are embedded in concrete to form a composite material called…
