  55. 55. EY4106 CONSTRUCTION STUDIES BUILDING SCIENCE AND EXPERIMENTATION Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology
  56. 56. EY4106 EXPERIMENT 1Experiment: To show the slump of concrete• Equipment: standard hollow slump, tamping rod, meter stick, measuring tape.Method1. Place the cone on a flat surface.2. Fill four equal layers, tamping in between each layer with a rod.3. Carefully lift off the cone.4. Place the meter stick on top of the cone.5. Measure the distance from the stick to the concrete, this is the slump.Results (Please use results from your own experiment!)Sample A=, Sample B=, Sample C=Conclusion• The slump test is used to compare the consistency of mixes made of similar materials in the same proportion. If the slump varies it can be a warning that the composition of the concrete has been altered. It will not show what changes have occurred but can be used as a warning.• For the samples tested it is obvious that the greater the amount of water used in the mix, the greater theofslump valueTechnology also shows the Department Design & Manufacturing is, this www.motivatednotes.com
  57. 57. EY4106 EXPERIMENT 1 Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology www.motivatednotes.com
  58. 58. EY4106 EXPERIMENT 2Experiment: To show the amount of silt in a single batch of sand• Equipment: sand, 1000ml measuring cylinder, salt, water.Method1. Pour 150ml of salt water into the cylinder.2. Add sand until the water level reaches the 300ml mark.3. More salt is added to bring the level up to the 500ml mark.4. Cover the top and shake vigorously.5. Leave to settle for three hours.6. Measure volume of silt and volume of sand.Result [Calculate as]Calculate = Height of Silt x 100 = % Silt Height of Sand 1(Use your own experiment results!)Conclusion• Silt in the concrete prevents cement and aggregates bonding together, resulting in weak concrete.• 8% or less of silt in acceptable, anything higher than this and the cement will not bond fully with the aggregate. Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology www.motivatednotes.com
  59. 59. EY4106 EXPERIMENT 2 % Water % Silt % Sand Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology www.motivatednotes.com
  60. 60. EY4106 EXPERIMENT 3Experiment: To test for bulking of sand.• Equipment: flat bottomed cylindrical glass container, water, rod, damp sand, tray.Method1. Place the damp sand into the container and measure the volume. (D)2. Pour the sand onto the tray.3. Half fill the container with water.4. Put the sand into the container and mix using the rod until fully saturated.5. Measure the height. (d)Result [Calculate as]D – d x 100 d 1Conclusion• This experiment shows very clearly that batching by volume can be very inaccurate, if the sand or aggregates are damp. A miscalculation of 32% would have an enormous effect on the strength of the concrete. Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology www.motivatednotes.com

  62. 62. EY4106 EXPERIMENT 4Capillary Action TestAim:• To examine the effect of DPC in halting the capillary action in the brick/block work.• Equipment: basin, four dry bricks, water, strips of DPC sufficiently large to cover a brick.Method:1. Place two bricks in the basin and add water until the bricks are half submerged.2. Cover one of the bricks with a strip of DPC, leave the other bricks uncovered.3. Place the remaining bricks directly on top of the bricks in the water.4. Leave the bricks in the water for one week and observe the results.Results:• After the bricks had been left in the water for one week the water had soaked up to the top of the bricks which were partially submerged. Furthermore, the top brick (A) of the pair without a strip of DPC had become wet at its base while the brick (B) which was placed over the strip of DPC was still dry.Conclusion• This test demonstrates that the water will travel upwards through block/brickwork by means of the capillary action provided there is sufficient moisture. The results also show that a strip of DPC completely halts the spread of moisture through brick/block-work, thus highlighting the importance of including a suitable DPC, in walls, floors, etc., to avoid all possible problems relating to damp penetration into a building.

  64. 64. EY4106 EXPERIMENT 5Experiment: To show capillary action in narrow spaces• Equipment: two panes of glass, match stick, container, elastic band, water, food colouring.Method1. Fill the container with water.2. Add the food colouring and mix until the water has changed colour.3. Set up equipment as in diagram below.Results• Water will rise highest at the end where the pores are close together and very little rise will occur at the other end.Conclusion• The larger the airspaces the less moisture will rise up by capillary action.

  76. 76. EY4106 PROJECT PORTFOLIOEXPERIMENTAL WORKStudents are required to submit a record of three experiments that they undertookduring their coursework. These experiments must be their own individual work and itis recommended that they be related to their project. The Chief Examiners Reportexplains:“Candidates who investigated aspects of the coursework, constructed ahypothesis, investigated this hypothesis and derived a conclusion succeeded inobtaining high marks. Such an approach is to be commended and candidates wererewarded accordingly….. Candidates are advised to relate the experimental work tosome aspect of the coursework undertaken. This provides candidates with anopportunity to hypothesise and to analyse in detail aspects of the coursework and torecord the results of such analysis. It also provides candidates with an opportunity toundertake unique experimental work. Candidates who submit derivativeexperimental work cannot achieve the full complement of marks. It is recommendedthat three experiments be undertaken by each candidate. A detailed description ofeach experiment, including a clearly stated objective, should be recorded in the foliofor assessment. Group or class experiments do not comply with the regulations ofthe SEC.” Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology (Techno Teachers Association, 20
  77. 77. EY4106 PROJECT PORTFOLIOEXPERIMENTAL WORKThe following is sample list of areas where students can engage inexperimentation:1. Tests on Jointing methods for project:a. Mortise & tenon vs. biscuit/domino vs. dowelb. Dovetail vs. finger vs. mitrec. Nailed vs. screwed vs. glued only2. Test on moisture content of wooda. Moisture content of wood ( see next page)b. Absorbance of wood (place dry wood in damp situation and test how muchwater it has gained). You can also test quality of exterior finish to see which oneallow most moisture to soak into wood. Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology (Techno Teachers Association, 20
  78. 78. EY4106 PROJECT PORTFOLIO3. Test on quality of finishing:a. Compare various finishes (varnish, oil, wax etc.) for qualities or suitability forproject. Compare under: i. Cost ii. Ease of application iii. Durability (scratch resistance, heat resistance, weather resistance) iv. Aesthetics (how well it looks when finished)4. Test on strength of structures:a. Triangulation test on roof members (model of rafters/ roof truss) the more aroof is triangulated the stronger and stiffer it should be)b. Bending strengths of timbers i. Fix on end of sample and tie weights on other rend and compare the deflection (amount of bend) of various types of timber OR compare same wood type (e.g. red deal) but compare thickness vs. width of samples (e.g. 10mm * 5mm piece vs. 10mm * 10mm piece vs. 15mm * 10mm piece etc. Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology (Techno Teachers Association, 20
  79. 79. EY4106 PROJECT PORTFOLIO This list is by no means exhaustive. The syllabus outlines further areas where students can engage in experimentation. Specific project areas can also lead to other experiments. For example a project on domestic electricity can include experiments on electrical circuits, resistors, photovoltaic cells etc. Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology (Techno Teachers Association, 20
