A study of some Nigerian carbonate rocks for the building ...

1994-9-1 · A number of geotechnical analyses were carried out on selected carbonate rock samples from ten locations in Nigeria. This was to assess the suitability of these rocks as building construction aggregates. The analyses included uniaxial compressive strength, tensile strength porosity, water absorption and dynamic fragmentation.
