Experiment 2

Title: Concrete compressive strength

Experiment objectives

(i) Expose students to testing concrete(ii) Identity the critical factors that affect concrete compression strength.

(iii)Perform statistical analysis of data , use TWO FACTOR ANOVA to screen factors and

investigate interactions if any.

(iii) Report writing

BackgroundConcrete is a mixture of cement, sand, stone (aggregate) and water. The compressive strength

depends on many factors and this experiment will provide a hands on practice on factor

screening. This experiment focuses on just two which are water cement ratio and binder type.

A number of concrete cubes have been cast using two water cement ratios of 0.4 and 0.55,

two binder types 50/50 OPC/GGBS and 100% OPC.

The concrete cubes have been cured for a period of 13days. The general testing procedure is

attached. You will be expected to do the labs in groups and due to limitations of space; each

group will have 20minutes for the lab. Please check the attached groups for the lab times

for your group. Note that the whole dataset for the whole testing wil l be used for your

report.

Uncertainty analysis(c) State the instrument resolutions for devices in your experiment. [1]

(d) Using dimensions from a single experimental unit and crushing load, calculate theuncertainty in the compressive strength [2]

Descriptive statisticsFor each set of results;

(e) Perform numerical summaries of compressive strength for each treatment (the summaries

should include mean, range and standard error.[3]

(f) Plot comparative box plots for the treatments. Are there any outliers? If so what are the

possible reasons for the outliers?[4]

Experiment design

(a) Identify at least 3 control factors in this experiment that affect compressive strength. [3](b) Identify the different treatments applied in the experiment. [2]

Inferential statistics [6marks](g) Does the additive model hold for this experiment?

*** Depending on the outcome in (g) either check the main effects hypothesis in (h and i) or

make a table of means

(h) Is there any evidence that compressive strength of concrete is influenced by w/c ratio?

(i) Is there evidence that compressive strength is influenced by the binder type?

[Assume 5% significance level in your ANOVA]
