THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE MADE USING CEMENT PRODUCED IN TANZANIA
This paper presents the compressive strength of concrete made using cement produced in Tanzania. The data presented in this paper is based on extensive laboratory testing of the concrete cube compressive strength made at different water-cement ratio using cement from four factories manufacturing cement in Tanzania. The relationship between the water-cement ratio and cube compressive strength are presented. The developed tables can serve as a starting point for carrying out concrete mix design using cement produced in Tanzania and can be used by prospective bidders to estimate the amount of cement required to produce a certain grade of concrete during bidding.
