Abstract

This work introduces a specially designed hollow block in such a way that the bonding was achieved by interlocking. The block provides facility for concealing electrical conduit, water and sewer pipes wherever so desired without causing much damage to the block. Proper surface finish was achieved by M10 mix. In order to get a finished surface several trial mixes were tested. The respective blocks were casted with and without steel fibres and the test results were compared. A comparative study of strength parameters is to be executed with respect to solid concrete block and concrete hollow block. Hollow block strengthened with steel fibre can be effectively used as load bearing wall.
