Some concreting practices in Kuwait villas need improvement

Auther : M.N. HAQUE

Department of Civil Engineering, University of Kuwait, P.O. Box: 5969, Safat, 13060, Kuwait
 
ABSTRACT
 
A case study consisting of two types of concrete making and placing methods in Kuwait housing, using ready-mixed concrete and site-mixed concrete, were investigated.  The strength development and the water penetrability of these concretes were monitored.  The analysis of results indicates that the initial cost savings realized by employing on-site concrete-making practices lead to a less durable concrete.  If a comparable quality of site-mixed concrete is required, the savings in material cost would be nominal, if any.
 
Keywords:  Compressive strength; Durability; Kuwait housing; Ready-mixed concrete; Site-mixed concrete
