Title: Anot on the Compatibility of Five Home-grown Species with Portland Cement
Author: Abdelgadir, A.Y.; Ibrahim, M. F.S.
Abstract: The objective of this study was to examine the compatibility of five home-grown wood species with ordinary portland cement by studying the compressive strength of their mixture. The tree species were Acacia nilotica, Balanites aegyptiaca,Calotropis procera, Eucalyptus camaldulensis and E. microtheca. The following cement to wood ratios were constituted and tested:- 10:1, 8:1, 6:1, 4:1 and 2:1 (weight: weight). The behaviour of cement when mixed with wood varied significantly (P= 0.0001) among the five species at all ratios, and the two Eucalyptus species had the highest compressive strength and were significantly different from the other three wood species.
