Density-strength diagram

The purpose of this test is to identify the optimized performance of papercrete in term of density and flexural strength. Strength is determined on the day 14, 21, 28 and 35 days for each sample (day 7 remove forms). There were four samples for each test and the results would be taken as the average of these.

Results
• Flexural strength increase higher while densitydecreases.
• Simple mix specimens sterngth increases more than 80%, when glass fibers increase around 40%.
• After 4th week the increase is smaller but the deviations in values become smaller
• Glass fibers have bigger deviation in values
