STRUCTURAL STRENGTH OF SHORT, AXIALLY LOADED COLUMNS OF REINFORCED, LATERIZED CONCRETE

Laterized concrete was defined as concrete in which "stable" laterite fines replace sand. Reinforced and unreinforced laterized concrete short columns of the same dimensions were cast from three mixes by weight and tested in axial compression after approximately 28 days. Shear and cleavage modes of failure were recognized in unreinforced laterized concrete short columns; however, lateral reinforcement prevented the development of short vertical cracks that led to failure in the reinforced laterized concrete short columns.
