Abstract

This Final Year Project is about the effect of aggregate size on the interfacial transition zone in concrete. Concrete is a construction material that consists of cement, commonly Portland cement, aggregate (generally gravel and sand) and water. Concrete is strong in compression but it is extremely weak in tension. This project will study about the influence of interfacial transition zone towards roncrete properties, the bond between aggregate and cement paste and the causes of weaknesses of concrete in tensile strength. Some experiment and test should be done in laboratory to analyze the performance of design mix concrete (high tensile strength concrete). Many researches and literature review also must be done to fmd the cause of weaknesses in teusion and to recommend modification that can be made to improve tensile strength of concrete. The significance of this project is to obtain high performance concrete with exceptional high tensile strength and compressive strength for future construction and development. The result of this project also minimizes the cost for construction by reducing the need of steel reinforcement in structure.
