Estimation Of Bridge Scour Using Hec 18 And Bd 97/12(A Case Study Of Twin Bridges Along Benin - Ofuso - Ore - Ajebandele- Shagamu Dual Cariageway In Ondo State)

ABSTRACT A bridge is a structure built to span physical obstacles without closing the way underneath such as a body of water, valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle. There are many different designs that each serve a particular purpose and apply to different situations. Designs of bridges vary depending on the function of the bridge, the nature of the ten-ain where the bridge is constructed and anchored, the material used to make it, and the funds availa...

Rice Husk Ash And Grinded Rice Husk Effect On The Compressive Strength And Workability Of Concrete

ABSTRACT The importance of concrete in modem society cannot be underestimated. There is no escaping from the impact of concrete on everyday life. Concrete is a composite material which is made of filler and a binder. Typical concrete is a mixture of fine aggregate (sand), coarse aggregate (rock), cement, and water. Nowadays the usage of concrete is increasing from time to time due to the rapid development of construction industry. The usage of concrete is not only in building constructi...

Compaction And Strength Characterisitcs Of Soils In Ikole-Ekiti Area And Their Influence In Civil Engineering Construction

ABSTRACT This study investigates the influence of two main geotechnical properties of soils in the town of Ikole-Ekiti on civil engineering construction. The strength and compaction characteristics of the natural soil were determined. The investigation was carried out through laboratory tests on disturbed and undisturbed soil samples obtained from four trial pits (Samples A, B, C & D) in the town, across Ilotin, Ijemo-Titun, Yeye-Oba and Asin respectively. The samples were collected bet...

Access To Domestic Water Supply Via Mechanical And Non Mechanical Energy System By Household In Using Ikole Local Government Area Ekiti State Nigeria

ABSTRACTThis project is designed to determine households' access to domestic water supply via mechanical and non-mechanical energy system in Usin, Ikole local government area Ekiti State Nigeria, in terms of quality and quantity as the importance of adequate safe water supply to human health cannot be over emphasized. However, safe/improve water supply to most Nigerian cities is still inadequate. In the study area the relationship between water quality the degree of water ...

Consolidation And Compaction Characteristics Of Soil At Ikole Campus Of Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State.

ABSTRACT  Assessing the geotechnical parameters helps in improving the soil settlement which usually causes damage to the civil structure. Compaction is one of the most important and routine engineering techniques, performed to assure the safety and stability of soils. In this study, geotechnical investigations at the lkole campus of Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State are carried out for undisturbed and ¬∑disturbed samples obtained at five (5) specified locations and at a dep...

Geotechnical Characterization Of Soils In Ikole-Ekiti Area Of Ekiti State

 ABSTRACTNot only do soils serves as underfoot" for roads, airfields. train tracks, and houses that sustain our complex society: Engineers, typically geotechnical engineers, classify soils recording to their engineering properties as they relate to its use as foundation support building material. The study of geotechnical characterization of soils in Ikole-Ekiti, Ekiti State was carried out to determine the index properties and strength properties of the soil. The laboratory test c...

Hazard Analysis Of Domestic Water Self Supply From Handdug Well In Asin Community Of Ikole Local Government Area

ABSTRACT Domestic water supply is a daily necessity and key factor in human health and well-being. Without water, life cannot be sustained and lack of access to adequate water supplies leads to wide spread of diseases with children bearing the greatest health burden associated with poor water quality and sanitation. Drinking water is water that is of sufficiently high quality so that it can be consumed or used without risk of immediate or long term harm. Asin-Ekiti community is situated...

Structural Performance Of Lateritic Concrete Containing Palm Kernel Shell (PKS) As A Partial Replacement Of Coarse Aggregate

ABSTRACT Sand has traditionally been used as fine aggregate in structural concrete. It is usually imported from relatively distant places at high costs, and this increases the overall cost of making concrete and of providing housing in various Nigerian communities. This study investigates the performance of 409/o of laterite as fine aggregate in place of sand, and specifically seeks to determine whether lateritic concrete containing pies would satisfy the minimum compressive strength re...

Some Later Days Structural Properties Of Concrete Containing Palm Oil Empty Bunch Ash (Poeba) As Partial Replacement Of Cement In Concrete

ABSTRACTIn an attempt to reduced non-renewable material usage, reduce green-house substances and at the same time be relevant to our environment, this research presents the progress of investigation going on to evaluate some properties of POEBA as partial replacement of cement in the production of structural concrete. This research work is carried out to determine the properties of Palm Oil Empty Bunch Ash (POEBA) when used as partial replacement for Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) in co...

The Effect Of Rice Husk Ash And Grinded Rice Husk On The Compressive Strength Of Concrete

ABSTRACT Rice Husk Ash (RHA) is one of the most active research areas that encompass a number of disciplines including civil engineering and construction materials. Grinded rice husk (GRH) and RHA is an agricultural waste product which is produced in large quantities globally every year. As the rice husk is piling up every day, there is a pressure on rice industries to find a solution for its disposal. Therefore as part ofa means to curbing this impending pollution problem. It is most e...

Effects Of Oil Palm Frond Ash On The Geotechnical Properties Of A Lime Stabilized Lateritic Soil

ABSTRACT Agro-based and bio-wastcs generally referred to as solid wastes are good stabilization materials. Different solid wastes have been used by various researchers combining two or more at different times to treat soil and improve its engineering properties since the long term performance of any construction project depends on the soundness of the underlying soils. This paper has discussed the effect of the application of lime at varying percentages of 2%, 4%, 6% and 8%, oil palm fr...

Variation In The Strength Properties Of Concrete Using Waste Glass As Partial Replacement For Different Coarse Aggregates Grading

ABSTRACT The Reuse of waste glass in concrete production is among the attractive option of achieving waste reduction and preserving the natural resources from further depletion thereby protecting the environment and achieving sustainability. This present study examined the variation in the strength prope1ties of concrete using waste glass aggregate (WGA) as partial replacement for different coarse aggregates grading. 20mm and =(25mm coarse aggregates were partially replaced with WGA of ...

Geotechnical Investigation Of Causes Of Road Failures In Ikolearea

ABSTRACT The condition and adequacy of the highway is often _judged by the smoothness or roughness of the pavement, deficient pavement conditions can result in increased user costs and travel delays, unnecessary braking and fuel consumption, vehicle repairs and probability of increased crashes. Pavement failure is usually a result of several factors which includes traffic impacts on the road, environmental factors, poor maintenance culture, geotechnical characteristics of the subgrade a...
