THE USE OF OIL PALM FIBER AS AN ADDITIVE IN CONCRETE

ABSTRACT  

This study on the strength development of concrete quality and properties using oil palm fiber was carried out to enhance and improve the quality and properties of concrete by using additives. The additive is substances added to fresh concrete to typically improve its properties. The research was conducted to establish the effect of oil palm fiber addition on the workability, density, and compressive strength of concrete. The mixes were prepared with fiber cement ratio of 0%, 0.25%, 0.50% and 1.0% respectively. A total of 16 concrete cubes. Specimens of 150mm X 150mm X 150mm were prepared for compressive strength testing after been cured in water for 7 days and 28 days. The workability of the concrete decreased with the increase in fiber content added to the mix. The result of the density test shows that the highest density of 2.97g/cm3 was achieved when 0.25% fiber was added. Test results of compressive strength on concrete also demonstrated that of 19.6 N/mm2   and 25.65 N/mm2 addition of 0.25% fiber content to concrete gave the highest compressive strength. The compressive strengths with the addition of 0.25% fiber content gave higher values than the control mixes of both 7 days and 28 days. It is therefore recommended that 0.25% fiber can be added to the concrete mix.

    Willie Ekereobong, University of Port Harcourt.
  • "WOW, SO IT'S TRUE??!! I can't believe I got this quality work for just 3k...I thought it was scam ooo. I wouldn't mind if it goes for over 5k, its worth it. Thank you!"

    Theressa, Igbinedion University.
  • "I did not see my project topic on your website so I decided to call your customer care number, the attention I got was epic! I got help from the beginning to the end of my project in just 3 days, they even taught me how to defend my project and I got a 'B' at the end. Thank you so much researchwap.com, infact, I owe my graduating well today to you guys...."

    Joseph, Abia state Polytechnic.
  • "My friend told me about ResearchWap website, I doubted her until I saw her receive her full project in less than 15 miniutes, I tried mine too and got it same, right now, am telling everyone in my school about researchwap.com, no one has to suffer any more writing their project. Thank you for making life easy for me and my fellow students... Keep up the good work"

    Christiana, Landmark University .
  • "I wish I knew you guys when I wrote my first degree project, it took so much time and effort then. Now, with just a click of a button, I got my complete project in less than 15 minutes. You guys are too amazing!."

    Musa, Federal University of Technology Minna
  • "I was scared at first when I saw your website but I decided to risk my last 3k and surprisingly I got my complete project in my email box instantly. This is so nice!!!."
