in 20 litres of clean water. Using ten levels of these concentrations, five sandcrete blocks of size 150mm cube were produced for each concentration, making a total of fifty blocks and the compressive strengths at 28 days were determined. Using a concentration of 50g/l, twenty blocks were produced with 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40%
