Abstract

In this research, the feasibility of making quality concrete with soils for regions where construction sand and aggregates are in short supply was studied. Five different soil types were used in this study. The variation of density and strength of soil concrete with water content was investigated to obtain suitable water cement ratios for soil concrete. Optimum water content values were used in a detailed study of the pozzolanic reaction in soil concrete. Results led to a conclusion that all the soil types except clays may be used to make concrete. The durability test showed that all soil concrete types continued pozzolanic reaction beyond the 28 days.
