ABSTRACT
This project present the investigatory result on the use of locust bean pod extract (LBPE) as a replacement for water on the Compressive strength of concrete. The locust bean pod is a waste material that is normally discarded after the seed have been harvested. 60 cubes of blocks of size 150 x 150 x 150mm were produced using locust bean pod extract as a blinder in concentration of 0, 0.15, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5kg/l respectively. The cubes without locust bean pod extract were used as control. The whole cube were cured under atmospheric condition in the laboratory and their compressive were determined. It was found that locust bean pod extract can significantly increase the compressive strength of the concrete block by 78.57% and that the concentration of the locust bean pod extract, the greater the compressive strength of the concrete cubes.
