Abstract

EFFECTS OF MAGNETIZED WATER ON THE ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF SANDCRETE BLOCKS

*Ikri Samuel Obokparo and Juliana Selimat Okpoko

ABSTRACT

In this research, the effects of magnetized water on the engineering properties of sandcrete blocks was studied, in order to obtain efficient sandcrete blocks with relatively high levels of strength in comparison to that of potable water and at a lower cost. Values and results were determined from the experiments conducted. The magnetized water was made by passing potable water through a tube covered with magnets in order to create a magnetic field. a sandcrete mix was prepared, one without magnetized water and one with it. Sieve analysis and compressive strength tests were carried out on the mix and it was found out that the sandrete block produced by magnetized water increases the compressive strength of the sandcrete which will explain in detail why magnetized water should be a parmanent substitute to potable water and also a long term solution to the construction problems faced in the sandcrete block industry.
